Visual Arts Facilitator with SEND Experience, Free Space Project


The Free Space Project is a charity supporting arts and community initiatives taking place within Kentish Town Health Centre. The organisation is uniquely situated within primary care, working in-house and in partnership with the James Wigg GP Practice, a pioneering practice that champions integrated care. The organisation has been running for ten years and seen as an exemplar of social prescribing, providing activities on prescription to our patients and those in the local community.

FSP are seeking an artist or art teacher with experience of working with young people with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) for our upcoming project Freedom to Express. The project is a 7-week visual arts project for SEND children between the ages of 10 and 15 and their siblings. During the sessions the young people will spend their time exploring what freedom means to them using a variety of different artistic techniques. The work created in these sessions will be shown in a group exhibition in 2020.

This project is being facilitated in partnership with MOSAIC Camden, a service for disabled children, young people and their families in Camden. MOSAIC are also based within Kentish Town Health Centre.

Facilitator Role

FSP are seeking an artist or art teacher with proven SEND training and experience to facilitate these creative workshops. The facilitator will be familiar with the challenges and needs of young people with SEND. Working with another artist, the facilitators will develop a programme of creative visual arts activities each week for the young people. These activities must consider the needs of the young people sensitively. The facilitator(s) will be supported by Free Space Project staff in the sessions.
