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?

We’re looking for an experienced youth arts professional to play a key role in our Well Iawn programme while our Youth Arts Officer takes maternity leave.

Well Iawn is a 3 year project, funded by the Big Lottery Fund, which uses drama and arts activities to support the wellbeing of young people. Well Iawn takes a holistic view of wellbeing, looking at factors including environment and community as well as physical and emotional wellbeing. Working with our regular groups in Ammanford and Brynaman, and with disadvantaged young people from across South Wales, you’ll need lots of enthusiasm and initiative to fulfil the 2 aspects of the role:

  • Delivery – creating and delivering drama and creative wellbeing activities to young people
  • Project Management and Co-Ordination – identifying potential youth groups who could benefit from the project and planning, organising and arranging programmes of creative wellbeing activities with them.
