Freelance Creative Community Facilitator, Torbay Culture


Torbay Culture and Torbay Community Development Trust are looking for an experienced Creative Facilitator to support a new test-and-learn community project in Chelston, Torquay, inspired by Arts Council England’s Creative People & Places programme.

Over the summer, the Community Development team have been talking to residents about what they love about their local area. We are now seeking a Creative Facilitator to take the residents on a journey - to build a consensus around their most valued assets, open eyes to the different opportunities available through the arts, and support them to commission an artist. Ultimately, the community will come together in a creative celebration of Chelston.

We are looking for an individual or team with experience in community engagement and broad knowledge of the arts/creative practices; someone who can engage and enthuse in creative ways and can stimulate ideas, drawing on experience from other places.
