Out There Arts are looking for Creative Workshop Facilitators across multiple disciplines to take a lead role in delivering creative workshops as part of the NLHF Ice House Delivery Project: the transformational, repurposing of a heritage building (The Ice House) into an arts and cultural centre to support Great Yarmouth’s cultural activities.

Workshop facilitators will take the lead in planning and delivering creative sessions with a range of ages and levels. The sessions will ideally link to heritage themes that relate to the rejuvenation of the Ice House. All disciplines are welcome, whether that is print, collage, illustration, pottery.
