WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR

We’re looking for an ambitious, grass roots organisation to join the network from Jan 2022 – Jul 2023 to collaborate with our communities and deliver two co-created projects with live performance at its heart.

We are specifically looking for an organisation who is passionate about and has experience of co-creation, and working in a town or city where there is currently a low level of arts and cultural investment.  You will have experience of delivering ambitious community focused projects, you will be passionate about supporting the future opportunities of where you’re working, and already ingrained in your local community, with an active relationship with local people, groups, organisations.

 

It’s incredible being part of Moving Roots, it’s enabled us to bring much-needed resource, creativity, and energy into our community….It feels like we’re building new models, new ways of collaborating – ways that are more equitable, that value people, places and have social change at the heart.
