SingAbout is a social activity based on recognised music therapies to promote health and wellbeing. Sessions are inclusive and designed to help those living with long term conditions, those who are socially isolated and older people who want to sing. Independent Arts currently runs eight regular SingAbout sessions across the Island with additional 'Pop up' sessions in various locations and two groups specifically located at St Marys Hospital.
We are looking for an Arts Practitioner to deliver sessions in care homes island wide, together with the potential to work with the Independent Arts team on commissioned projects. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates that have a Fine Art background and can deliver varied Arts sessions in care homes. Experience of working with older or disadvantaged people is desirable.
Creative Writing Practitioner:
We are also looking for a Creative Writing Practitioner to deliver sessions in care homes island wide as part of our Magic Doors and Creative Writers projects. We are particularly interested in hearing from candidates that have experience of working with older people.
