Artist / Creative Facilitator – for Mighty Mega Saturday Club

Application closing on Wed 10 Aug 12pm

We are looking for a facilitator to run a term (eleven weeks) of participatory weekly sessions online and in-person between Saturday 1st October and Saturday 17th December 2022. 

Mighty Mega is a longstanding free Saturday morning club for disabled children and children with SEN aged 5-11 and their families. The project has hosted visiting artists from various art forms, including storytelling, photography, music, dance, theatre and animation. The club runs on Saturday mornings at Discover. In the first hour, members have access to the first floor Story World where they can engage in free play and craft activities. Members can then choose to participate in a workshop led by a visiting artist and including multi-sensory, accessible activities.

Mighty Mega has been delivered digitally since April 2020 and the digital strand remains an integral part of the project while some members aren’t able to attend in-person sessions at Discover. Therefore, we are looking for a facilitator who will also be able to provide weekly digital activities (filmed activities, activity sheets, craft tutorials, etc.) to share with members via our newsletter alongside in-person sessions.   

We are keen to hear from artists from a range of art forms, particularly from those who consider themselves a disabled artist.
