Session Facilitator – Jolly Good Communities / Barnsley Museums

Posted on: 01/08/2022

We are seeking to appoint a session facilitator for our Barnsley project working with the Key Partners, Barnsley Museums and Jolly Good Communities, to collaborate with a group of 10 young people to explore their local area and develop a creative line of enquiry.

Fee: £6,050 for 22 days work (£275 a day), inclusive of VAT (This includes developing a manual with other facilitators, session planning, session delivery, working with other creatives and the end of year celebration)

Vital to the success of this project is listening to young people about what they are interested in and exploring possible ways for them to express this interest. This project will not be about dictating ideas of culture to young people but will be about listening to what culture means to them. By taking a co-productive approach the programme aims to remove some of the barriers to engagement with the cultural sector that young people face and create a sense of agency in young people that can be reflected into their communities.

The session facilitator will be working with 10 young people aged 16-22 who don’t currently visit museum or gallery spaces regularly. It is crucial that the appointed facilitator is able to draw out of the young people the confidence and skills needed to develop a creative output. We are particularly interested in applications from people who have shared lived experiences with the young people in Barnsley.
