work opportunities at Imagine

If you are interested in our work and want to get involved, we offer the following opportunities:

  • Facilitator/Partner

We are looking for one or possibly two dedicated, enthusiastic people with some experience in art and therapy, who wish to join our inspirational and unique studio practice in Stroud.

Tasks would include facilitating open and/or structured groups, help with managing and organising various aspects of the project such as planning, communication, marketing and PR, bookings, exhibitions, promoting the initiative, fund raising and more.

What we ask for is a part time commitment and the level of involvement in the organisation will determine the remuneration.

To find out more and apply for the position, please email a covering letter with your CV to info@imagine-therapeutic-arts.co.uk

 

  • Placement for students/trainees, within the arts and therapeutic professions

As a student/trainee you will be invited to take part in both our open and structured groups, working with vulnerable adults and young people. The aim is that through your experience you gain an overall understanding of how this unique community project functions.

You will be able to work artistically alongside and, at the same time, to facilitate the members’ process by offering help and support if and when needed – on the artistic, technical as well as the emotional level.

We offer supervision and the opportunity to reflect on your own artistic and learning process, as well as the group dynamics. We offer the use of art materials in the studio and some expenses might be covered.

We expect you to contribute to the quality and care of the background studio management, which forms part of the success of our initiative.
We require a six-month’s minimum commitment.
