As part of the national Kickstart programme, Artswork will be employing up to 30 young people as Youth Consultants across South East England. Youth Consultants will work both within Artswork and with external partner organisations, providing insight and focus around Youth Voice in policies and practice.
Artswork are now looking for South East arts and cultural organisations that would be interested in becoming a partner for this programme. Partner organisations will have the opportunity to re-examine their policies and practice through the lens of Youth Voice, and refresh approaches to work in a creative way.
Partners will be expected to provide our Youth Consultant/s with a particular project or brief, and work with them to ensure they understand the needs of your organisation. As an employer, Artswork will ensure all Youth Consultants are fully trained and supported throughout the programme.
If you are interested in becoming a Partner Organisation, please read the briefing pack on the Artswork website and then contact Annabel Cook, Head of Education, Skills and Enterprise firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 December 2020 with:
- An indication of what your brief might cover
- An indicative timescale ie: 2 weeks, 4 weeks etc
- An indication of how many young people you feel would be appropriate for your organisation. For example, if you are an SME, then 2-4 young people would probably be a good number. Larger organisations might feel they would like input from a larger number.
