Do you want a say in making creative things happen in the Barrow area?
About the role
As an Advisor, you will help BarrowFull to:
- Decide what kinds of creative stuff (events, activities, classes etc) will be put on.
- Ensure that the opinions, interests, and needs of the people of Barrow are considered.
- Tell everyone (friends, family, neighbours) what’s going on!
BarrowFull would love advisors to be:
- Barrow locals, especially people from Barrow Island, Central Barrow, Hindpool, Ormsgill, Risedale, and Walney North.
- People representing Barrow’s businesses, charities, or other organisations.
- Creative – but you definitely don’t need to be a professional! You could be doing creative things as an individual or as part of a bigger group.
You don’t have to have done anything like this before – in fact, it’s great if you haven’t! We will support you along the way.
- Active involvement in increasing Barrow’s creativity!
- Something great for your CV
- A chance to meet new people in your community
Dates and Availability
- BarrowFull Advisors will meet several times throughout the year from April 2023 to March 2024.
- You will also be invited to sit on smaller decision-making panels for different areas of the programme.
- You will be consulted on the development of BarrowFull throughout the year.
BarrowFull co-creates exceptional arts and cultural activity with the people of Barrow, working in partnerships with local, national, and international examples of excellent, socially engaged creative practice and sharing our own action learning in turn.
One of the ways that BarrowFull do this is through ‘Boosting Barrow’s Creativity.’ This programme encourages the people of Barrow to submit creative ideas, which they then support in order to bring the idea to life! This has included classes that teach people to make things such as cards, wreaths, and wax melts, as well as singing groups, sewing clubs, and series of talks.
