Exciting job opportunity - Creative Catalyst - Art of Libraries


Create Gloucestershire (CG) is involved in an exciting three-year pilot programme up to 2019, boldly aiming to reimagine cultural education and the potential for Gloucestershire libraries to become hubs for introducing arts and culture to children, young people and families.

Following on from the success of Art of Libraries in six early adopter libraries in Gloucestershire, we are now looking for a new person to take over the role of Creative Catalyst at Dursley Library from March – December 2018.  

The Catalyst will enable the library team to co-develop and sustain a broad range of high quality activities and creative programmes suitable for children, young people and families from the local area that tackle barriers to creative engagement head on.

We need someone with a keen interest in arts and culture, who is able to build on Dursley Library’s creative vision, manage relationships with artists and community partners and ultimately support culture change in the library to enable staff to step into this role when the project ends.   It is vital that all activities set up are in collaboration with library staff and community partners, have the potential to be self-organised and firmly rooted in the local community.  Key to this will be your ability to involve young people as leaders and contributors.

Deadline for application: Thursday 8 March, 12 noon

Interview date: Wednesday 14 March at Dursley Library, May Lane, Dursley, Gloucs, GL11 4JH
