Job details

Music Practitioners (freelance)

Project Name: Turn the Beat Around

Contract: freelance

Timescale: from March 2018 – March 2019

The Courtyard Centre for the Arts is looking to recruit four music practitioners to deliver a new Creative Ageing project – Turn the Beat Round.  This exciting opportunity is part of the innovative mentoring model and will allow you to develop your own practice whilst working alongside experts within the arts and older people field. 

The ideal candidates will have a real desire to strive towards improving the quality of life for older people through direct access to the arts.  You will need to have experience of facilitating music-based workshops; however experience working with older people is not essential, as the programme is designed to support practitioners to develop their skills in this area.  Those with some experience of working with older people are still encouraged to apply if they are keen to develop their skills further whilst working alongside an expert mentor. 

The project is kindly funded by The Big Lottery Reaching Communities Fund.

This project will be based in and around the county of Herefordshire.  Practitioners will be expected to have access to transport in order to reach the various locations of the project.
