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 Wednesday Dance classes are a space for our whole community to come along and get moving – whether that’s as part of our Intergenerational Dancers, or as part of our brand-new Youth Dance Company, we want to provide an accessible and enjoyable choreographic experience for everyone!
We are currently recruiting for Lead Artists for the following classes:
Intergenerational Dance – 3.45pm – 5.15pm
Choreography Studio – S1 to S4 – 5.30pm – 7.00pm
Youth Dance Company – 16 to 25s – 7.30pm – 9.00pm
All these classes will take place at Cumbernauld Theatre at Lanternhouse. Our Choreography Studio and Dance Company will run from Wednesday the 13 October – Wednesday 24 November, and our Intergenerational Dance will run from Wednesday 13 October – Wednesday 10 November.
We’re looking for artists capable of delivering accessible and responsive dance classes, rooted in empowering everyone to move. We want our Intergenerational Group to be as accessible as possible, with our Choreography Studio and Youth Dance Company geared towards developing the choreographic potential of everyone who comes along!
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. We are happy to accept applications by artists to deliver consecutive classes on days where classes run throughout.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 3 September 2021.
We will notify all applicants by Monday 6 September and conduct interviews from Monday 13 September 2021.
