We are thrilled to be part of the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries 2017-19 programme which aims to help end middle class domination in the arts.

The scheme will see us take on an Assistant Facilitator/Director role in the New Year, recruiting exclusively from people with a low income background. The bursary aims to open up entry level work opportunities for gifted graduates who received a full maintenance grant throughout university and who would struggle to do the unpaid work which acts as a gateway into the sector for up 88% of young people working in the arts today*.

The Assistant Facilitator post will help us realise our ambitious creative visions for the future by supporting project delivery, taking the lead on some of our Member workshops and supporting the artistic planning and delivery of our programmes. We will be recruiting for this post in the coming months, hoping to have a candidate in post by early 2018, so watch this space for more details soon.

The Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries 2017-19 programme is designed and managed by Jerwood Charitable Foundation in partnership with the British Council. It has been made possible through the combined support of Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence Fund, Garfield Weston Foundation, Jerwood Charitable Foundation, CHK Charities Limited and PRS Foundation.
