The Glorious Cotswold Grasslands project (GCG) is a three year project with the primary objective of creating or restoring 100 hectares of wildflower grasslands across the Cotswolds National Landscape. The project is primarily funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, and we are fortunate to have funding specifically to develop an arts project/competition to engage and work with local schools and colleges.

We are looking for an arts facilitator/coordinator to lead this element of the project. The three main objectives of this will be to:

1. Celebrate Cotswold wildflower meadows as a habitat, the creatures that live in them, the plants that grow in them
2. Engage, educate, and inspire the next generation of people who will look after our grassland landscapes
3. Celebrate the project and its success

We are looking for an arts facilitator/coordinator who can fully coordinate this competition, exhibition, and (potentially) permanent art work within the £10,000 budget. We’d like to find someone who is creative, has a background in arts coordination, has experience working with schools and school pupils, and is enthusiastic about nature and habitat restoration. We need someone who will be able to convey the importance of wildflower grassland to pupils of all ages in a fun and inspiring way. We would like to find someone who is resourceful and can manage the budget responsibly.

We are looking for someone who can work independently, with additional support from our GCG team, primarily through regular meetings with our GCG assistant project officer to share ideas, knowledge and contacts.

Finally, we’d like to find someone who is well connected in the local arts scene, able to identify a suitable panel of judges for the competition, which should include an arts teacher and one of the GCG project team.
