Theatre Facilitator, Imagine If Theatre


Imagine If Theatre are holding a theatre facilitator recruitment day on Tuesday 7th January 2020.

Although this is a general recruitment drive to increase our pool of freelance staff, for work throughout 2020, we are specifically interested in identifying x2 theatre facilitators to deliver our Bird on the Wing prison interventions.

Prisoners work with Imagine If to devise a short performance after an intensive programme of theatre and employability skills workshops.

We are looking for experienced theatre facilitators who are available in February/ March/ April.
