Current Vacancies

Remuneration

Fee: £7,750 for 12 months, based on 58 days of funded time, worked flexibly over that time)

DEADLINE: 10 October 2022 5pm

Beyond the Border – Wales’ International Storytelling Festival together with partners from the National Eisteddfod, Menter Iaith, People Speak Up, Citrus Arts, Head4Arts and Theatre Soar are working together in an exciting new collaboration to ensure the future of the storytelling sector in Wales, with funding from the Arts Council of Wales’ Connect and Flourish fund.

We are recruiting for our year 2 roles of producers and Cyfarwyddion starting in January 2023 to work in areas across Wales.

The Mycelium Story Hub is a network of organisational and freelancer partners, committed to sharing practice & nurturing less frequently heard stories from across Wales’ diverse communities. The model is inspired by nature’s mycelium networks and includes support for producers and a new role of contemporary Cyfarwyddion.

The Contemporary Cyfarwyddion and Producers who are part of the Mycelium Story Hub will be supported to develop a programme of storytelling activity, including storytelling performances and engagement, which reach more widely and deeply into the community in which their residencies are based.  Some communities will be geographic, but we are also open to applications based on communities of interest.

We are keen to hear from potential producers with a range of experience and interest in storytelling. Maybe you are an experienced arts producer who has never worked with storytellers, maybe you are a storyteller who would like to develop skills in producing, maybe you are an arts producer who would like to produce events with storytelling at their heart, maybe you have strong relationships or partnerships in a particular community where there are stories waiting to be told and heard.  The applications we receive will influence how the roles are delivered – you may be paired with a Cyfarwydd to work in partnership with them in a particular community, or you might develop a programme or project with opportunities for other storytellers and partners.

We are especially keen to hear from practitioners who are interested in working through co-creative principles, working with or alongside people and communities to develop skills and showcase people’s capabilities, prioritising the involvement and experience of young people and families, D/deaf and disabled people, Black, Asian and global majority people, the LGBTQIA+ community, Welsh speakers.

The aim of this work is to:

  • enable more partners from a range of communities to connect creatively with storytelling
  • enable more people to experience storytelling as a meaningful part of their daily lives
  • enable more people to develop creativity and confidence in engaging with storytelling
  • enable the expansion and deepening of your producing skills through the work you initiate and through your connections with others in the Hub.

We are recruiting two storytellers to develop programmes of storytelling activity which reach widely and deeply into communities, as part of Year 2 of the Mycelium Story Hub project.

As a Contemporary Cyfarwydd, you will develop a programme of storytelling activity, including storytelling performances and engagement, which reaches more widely and deeply into the community where your residency is based. Some communities will be geographic, but we are also open to applications based on communities of interest.  Over the course of your role, your work will:

  • enable more partners from across your community to connect creatively with storytelling
  • enable more people to experience storytelling as a meaningful part of their daily lives
  • enable more people to develop creativity and confidence in engaging with storytelling
  • enable the expansion and deepening of your own practice and skills through the work you initiate and focused time on your own artistic development.

You will have ownership to develop your own ideas and programme in partnership with your community and to respond to the needs and potential of your area. Oral storytelling is a very diverse practice, and we are open to applications that reflect that diversity including across a broad range of work, health and wellbeing, language learning, education, performance, nurturing new artists, and training.

As part of your application, we will ask you to specify the communities you are most keen to work with.

We are especially keen to hear from artists who are interested in working through co-creative principles, working with or alongside people and communities to develop skills and showcase people’s capabilities. We would also like to prioritise the involvement and experience of young people and families, D/deaf and disabled people, Black, Asian and global majority people, the LGBTQIA+ community, and Welsh speakers.
