NewsWeston Jerwood Creative Bursary - Job Opportunity

We are recruiting a Creative Learning Assistant to help us build an embedded learning offer for the organisation and programme. Part time, 3 days a week.

Please note that the deadline for this role has now passed.

Peckham Platform will take over a new gallery in the redeveloped Peckham Library Square. Set to open in 2019, our new permanent home will have more space, better facilities and a greatly expanded programme of free cultural events.

Working with local communities to commission artists is central to our social arts practice. Whilst our new home is being built we shall deliver an exciting series of offsite projects across Peckham and South London.

This post will support us in ensuring that creative learning experiences remain integral to each of Peckham Platform’s commissions. You will help us engage our audiences through learning, testing the way our work will be delivered in the new space.

The post-holder will gain an in-depth knowledge of social arts practice both through assisting with and observing the delivery of creative sessions and by researching the organisations, projects and artists key to this growing body of work.

We can offer learning about the range of career opportunities in the arts, specifically within the field of social arts and the skills required to deliver practice within communities with complex social needs. You will directly develop skills, increase confidence & strengthen networks in Peckham and beyond.

You will need to have a passion for arts and education, an interest in learning about socially engaged practice and be willing to contribute to developing provision for diverse and challenged communities to actively engage with art practice.
