Creativity Works Vacancies

 Updated 12 December 2019
THE COMMISSION
Creativity Works are commissioning a piece of socially engaged art inspired by Valentine’s Day for the town and community of Radstock, where Creativity Works is based.
The commissioned project must include the audience/participants in the creation and presentation of the artwork.
The audience/participants must be able to engage and interact with the artwork, participate in artistic activity and become an integral part of the artwork itself. We aim to create high quality artistic output, social interaction, and to bring a sense of playfulness and wonder to Radstock. Essentially, it must be a metaphorical ‘love letter’ by, with and for the people of Radstock.
The project commissioned will be of the highest artistic quality and include the following outcomes:
  • serve as a catalyst for social interaction
  • promote civic togetherness and pride
  • encourage participants to engage in further artistic practice
Any resulting pieces of art will be offered to the locality for further engagement and the process will be recorded and placed online as an inspirational legacy.

We are looking for new Trustees to join our board. Could that be you?

Creativity Works is a thriving arts and health charity, based in Radstock, just south of Bath and we are looking for new Trustees to join our friendly board.

We specialise in delivering outstanding creative projects with communities across Bath, Bristol and Somerset through our artistic practice in Socially Engaged Arts. Projects are targeted at specific communities in areas of Health and Wellbeing, Community Development, and Placemaking, with people of all ages.

We are entering an exciting stage of our development as an Arts Council England funded National Portfolio Organisation [NPO], and we’re in need of certain extra skills on our Board.

We are currently seeking new Trustees with the following skills to help us to achieve our goals:

  • Legal
  • Socially Engaged Artists
  • Accountancy & Financial
  • Business / Enterprise Development

Whilst ideally you’d be a practicing professional, we recognise that as a voluntary role it might be more suited to an active newly retired person. If you are interested in volunteering as a Trustee and have the time and energy to devote to us, we would love to hear from you.

What’s involved:

As a trustee you will be helping the Board to lead a hard-working, creative and dedicated team of staff, steering the way in the effective growth and promotion of this expanding organisation.

Trustees meet 6 times a year for about 2 hours at our offices in Radstock and we encourage engagement in particular areas of work and ongoing projects. For further details about our work visit our website www.creativityworks.org.uk, like us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/CW4everyone) and follow us on Twitter (@CW4everyone).

If you would like to assist our work as a Trustee, or can put us in contact with someone who might be interested, please email Louise Lappin-Cook, our Chairperson via chair@creativityworks.org.uk and enclose a CV outlining your experience.

We look forward to hearing from you!
