Creative Facilitator - Poetry, Spoken Word Or Storytelling, National Maritime Museum


Royal Museums Greenwich is looking for an experienced creative learning facilitator to develop and deliver the sessions for women to grow their confidence and literacy skills through creative spoken word, storytelling and/ or poetry. Although living in the local area many of the participants will not have visited the Museum before and some of the participants may have experienced domestic violence and abuse, therefore the facilitator should be experienced in working in a sensitive and flexible way. The facilitator will be experienced in using creative spoken word, storytelling and/ or poetry with participants and creating accessible experiences differentiated for different abilities and learning styles. The experience for participants should be engaging, creative and fun using the museum’s collections as inspiration.

Current statistics show that women in the Royal Borough of Greenwich have a lower life expectancy than in many of the boroughs across London and areas of the UK due to different social determinants of wellbeing. This programme will give women recruited through the Her Centre the opportunity to develop their confidence and literacy skills through creative spoken word, story-telling and/or and poetry workshops using National Maritime Museum collections as inspiration.
