Arts at University of Southampton is looking for Southampton-based Artist Facilitators to deliver a ‘Creative Consultation’ Workshop Programme involving over 350 participants, aged five to 25 and Early Years families across the city starting in Autumn 2019. This is stage one of ‘Connecting Culture’, an ambitious Southampton-wide project with children and young people at its heart.
A large consortium of cultural organisations and child-focused services, led by the University of Southampton, will work together on this ground-breaking research project to address the question of how the city’s thriving Cultural Quarter can enrich the lives of those aged 5 to 25.
The Artist Facilitators will work together to devise, develop and deliver a series of consultation workshops suitable for a range of ages and levels, to take place in different settings across the city’s 16 wards. In collaboration with the ‘Connecting Culture’ Research Team, the Artist Facilitators will embed the consultation questions and Arts Award Discover and Explore framework into the workshops, enabling all participants to achieve their own Arts Award.
The Creative Consultation will form the basis of Connecting Culture’s research and long-term cultural planning relating to ‘Child-Friendly’ Southampton.
