Community Arts Groups Development Worker (part-time), Hounslow Arts Trust Ltd


Job Summary

We’re looking for a creative and dynamic Community Arts Groups Development Worker to join our team, working throughout the borough of Hounslow.

Job Description

Creative People & Places (CPP) is a multi-year funding programme of Arts Council England. The aim of the programme is to increase engagement in the arts in boroughs where this has historically been below the national average. The Hounslow CPP programme is led by a consortium of 5 organisations, led by Watermans. Funding is in place for 2022-25 to initiate a collaborative programme designed to increase arts engagement across the borough, to improve the arts infrastructure available, and empower communities to take the lead in developing local arts programmes.

The partners in the Hounslow Creative People & Places consortium are: Watermans (lead partner), Hounslow Music Service, London Borough of Hounslow, Hounslow Libraries and TW4 Community Development Trust.

The Community Arts Groups Development Worker (P/T) will be employed by Watermans on behalf of the Consortium. However, the post holder will facilitate the development and delivery of an engagement and learning programme associated with specific geographical areas and communities within the borough and will therefore often work in other community venues. The Community Arts Groups Development Worker (P/T) will work closely with all the Consortium partners and in particular Hounslow Music Service.
