Job:  Burton-on-Trent’s community arts team The Big Art People are looking for someone to help out during busy periods, especially June and July 2010. The applicant must be flexible, as they cannot offer regular working hours. Work will involve generally assisting during workshops, helping groups of children, finishing off work etc. with scope for potentially running your own workshops in the future. It would suit a fellow creative practitioner, an ex-teacher looking to supplement their income, an arts graduate looking for experience, or indeed anyone who enjoys working with children and fancies getting involved in some big, collaborative art projects. Send a C.V. and/or letter of interest to and they’ll get in touch. There is no deadline.
