Our Workshop Leaders usually come from an art or drama background and sometimes arts psychotherapy. During workshops you will lead drama games, storytelling, write scripts, direct and create props, costumes and sets, supported by a co-facilitator. You may be required to devise your own activities based on a theme or classic children’s story, or you might be working to an existing Artburst workshop plan. All Workshop Leaders are expected to meet and plan sessions with their co-facilitator, as well packing materials, prepping for all sessions and attending any relevant training.

Artburst Workshop Leaders are expected to have at least 2 years’ experience of leading workshops with young people, with ideally a degree or professional qualification in your primary artform.

If you are interested in submitting your details, please email with a copy of your CV and a short cover letter outlining your experience and any additional skills.

Please note, we get a huge number of enquiries, but we do try to keep everyone on file for when we are recruiting new facilitators.
