Artist Development and Trainee Posts Available

darts has launched a new training programme. ‘Expanding Horizons’ is for artists who are local to South Yorkshire and are interested in developing their skills in participatory/community arts practice.

Artist Development and Trainee Posts Available

Candidates might be a visual artist, writer, poet, dancer, drama practitioner or maker who has some experience in delivering community sessions, but wants to extend their practice further e.g. delivering sessions with adults living with dementia or with Disabled young people. The opportunity is also for those who are passionate about their art form, but have no workshop delivery experience at all.

This traineeship programme will allow people work alongside darts’ professional and experienced artists to see how their art form can have a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing. The three month placements are flexible around candidates’ existing commitments and are paid at the Real Living Wage.

Trainees will be based at The Point in Doncaster city centre, and will have the chance to observe and take part in sessions across the borough with school pupils, adults living with mental health issues, those with Long Covid, People living with dementia, Disabled children and young people and a range of other groups. Mentoring, training, co-design and co-delivery will give all successful candidates the opportunity to practice and develop their skills, building a wealth of knowledge and experience.
