Are you passionate about youth arts and drama and engaging young people from diverse backgrounds? Are you committed to making sure all young people are able to participate regardless of the particular barriers they may face?

With funding from Big Lottery Fund, we’re embarking on a 3 year project using drama and arts activities to support the wellbeing of young people across South Wales. The Youth Arts Officer is a key role on this project: creating and delivering activities with young people and managing small project activities.

We’re looking for an experienced professional with the enthusiasm and practical skills to help us bring this vision to even more hard to reach and easy to ignore young people.
