About the Role

Arts & Health South West is looking for a dynamic and creative freelance Project Coordinator. We want to find someone who has a good knowledge of and experience in using co-production and who is experienced in working with young people. The main output will be a digital toolkit for dissemination of the learning from the Reaching In and Reaching Out (RIRO) project.

Candidates should be based in Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol or North Somerset as face to face meetings and events will take place in these areas.

RIRO is being co-produced with young people experiencing loneliness, social disadvantage, mental health challenges and those struggling to find work aged 16-24, who live in the West of England Combined Authority area. Research shows that engaging in creative activities can have a positive impact on health and wellbeing and the development of personal attributes like positive self-image, confidence, and social engagement. With a group of young people identified via our partner organisations, we will explore the link between creativity, wellbeing, community engagement and volunteering and co-produce a series of workshops in cultural venues. We will share learning regionally and nationally in the form of a framework or toolkit that is adaptable to different types and scales of cultural venues, programmes and events.

The project will work across three sites where our partners will develop experimental workshops and creative activities with young people in their area:

Bath & North East Somerset: Holburne Museum and Creativity Works

Bristol: creativeShift and John Wesley’s New Room

Weston-super-Mare: For All Healthy Living Centre and Theatre Orchard

The Project Coordinator will be responsible for coordinating the learning between the three sites and working with the Evaluator and Project Assistant to ensure that learning is captured and can inform the toolkit. They will need to be comfortable with quantitative and qualitative data and have some experience of evaluation. They will lead on writing the content for the toolkit with the Evaluator.

The Project Coordinator will be responsible for planning and helping facilitate seven meetings for the core co-production group and three larger events involving the partners and young people involved in all the experimentation sites. The time commitment will vary over the two year period and should be considered as approximately 4 days per month but with a flexible approach to be agreed in discussion with AHSW.

There will be regular meetings with AHSW which will include the Director, the General Manager, the Project Assistant and the Evaluator who make up the AHSW team.
