Take Part – Community Arts Lead Artists

Cumbernauld Theatre at Lanternhouse is recruiting for lead artists across their Creative Learning Programme for the Autumn – Winter 2021 terms.

This is an exciting time to join us at Cumbernauld Theatre as we begin our first ever programme in our new venue, launching with an entirely new Take Part programme across drama, dance, and community arts.

We’re looking for lead artists who are excited by the prospect of leading high-quality arts classes for our community, who want to design and create exciting terms of activity, and who are experienced in the delivery of creative learning projects and programmes.

Our Tuesday evening Community Arts classes offer a space for people interested in performance and theatre to come together, develop their skills, socialise, and maybe even share what they get up to!

We’re currently recruiting for Lead Artists for the following classes:

People’s Company: Adult Drama Studio – 7.00pm – 9.00pm

Inclusive Drama Studio – 4.00pm – 5.30pm

Our People’s Company will run every Tuesday from 12 October until 23 November, and our Inclusive Drama Studio will run from Tuesday12 October until Tuesday 9 November.

We’re looking for artists confident in their skills as facilitators, who can curate a high-quality and accessible series of classes that encourage and nurture the skills of all of our participants as performers and artists.

What We Offer:

All our Lead Artists will be supported by a trainee artist assistant as well as the core staff at the venue. Cumbernauld Theatre is committed to supporting the development of our lead artists throughout their engagement with us, and we’ll endeavour to support your practice through offering further opportunities and training.

Lead Artists will be paid £30 per hour, inclusive of planning, and will be provided a materials budget for their term. We are happy to accept applications by artists to deliver consecutive classes on days where classes run throughout.

If you would like to speak to a member of our team about the opportunities in more detail, please get in touch with our Community Engagement Manager.

To apply please submit a CV along with a cover letter that demonstrates previous projects and states which class(es) you are interested in leading and why, to our Community Engagement Manager, Eoin McKenzie, at recruitment@cumbernauldtheatre.co.uk by Friday 3 September 2021.

We will notify all applicants by Monday 6 September and conduct interviews from Monday 13 September 2021.
