What do we do?
Artis is a creative learning charity which helps children achieve at school by integrating the performing arts throughout their learning. Artis creates a very different experience from a typical classroom by linking music, drama and dance to curriculum learning as facilitated by performing arts specialists (Artis Specialists). Working as an Artis Specialist gives practitioners a platform to use their creativity within an educational context, offering training and support along the way. We attract the best practitioners because we respect and nourish artistic talent.
What are we looking for?
Artis Specialists to join our thriving team, who are willing to regularly travel and work in and around the West Yorkshire area. Artis Specialists are highly skilled, imaginative and versatile performing artists who can commit to delivering our creative curriculum on an ongoing basis across the academic year in primary schools, delivering anything from half a day to 4 days a week.
The ideal candidate will have experience and a passion for working with children in an educational setting and be open to delivering holistically. At this time, we are particularly looking for movement specialists to join our team, although we welcome applications from all performing arts practitioners with a flair for communication, who are open to new challenges and are inspired to nurture creativity in children.
It is essential that candidates are available to commit to ongoing, regular work in order to be considered for this role. A willingness to travel within your region is essential.
