Artspace Facilitators

Artspace Facilitators
Orb Community Arts
Description of the role:

Artspace@orb is an unpressured place in which our service users can express themselves as artists. Everyone is considered an artist and supported in creating their own work, developing their profile and potentially exhibiting pieces in public. Whilst members are encouraged to use the space to develop their own ideas, we need volunteers who will share the space, act as mentors, offer advice when needed and provide an entertainment that is creatively active, supportive and inspiring. Could you bring your skills to maintaining the Artspace as an active and welcoming environment and support others to express themselves and promote their work? If so then please get in touch.

Skills and qualities needed for the role:

There are no formal qualifications required for this role. A passion for the arts is a must, along with a belief in the power of creativity as a channel for positive mental health. Previous experience working in mental health is desirable, as is an arts background. We are particularly interested in volunteers who have facilitated arts based sessions, and have some teaching experience.

Skills and interests in the visual/creative arts desirable. These may include:

Drawing
Painting
Sculpture
Photography
Filmmaking
Computer art
Printmaking

Practical information:

Volunteers would be based at our main office and studio at the Garage, Elephant and Castle Yard, Knaresborough. The current premise is located on the first floor. There is a lift access and egress if required.
