Catherine Wheels / Young Audiences Group: Research Consultant / Facilitator

Closing date: Wed 25 Jan 2023: 11pm

The Young Audiences Group are seeking a consultant/facilitator to collaborate with them to support Phase 2 of a research and consultation process contributing to the development of the young audiences sector in Scotland.

The Young Audiences Group have secured further funding Creative Scotland to help them move to the next stage of their research; how to create a network or membership group/collective that would best serve its members and the sector. They wish to bring in an independent practitioner to objectively lead research and consultation into how they as a sector could set up a system that would be sustainable, equitable and self-led.

They are seeking to engage a consultant/facilitator with extensive knowledge of the theatre and dance sectors in Scotland and ideally some understanding of work for young audiences. The consultant/facilitator will collaborate with them on the delivery of this work, and work to reach the outcomes as listed below. They are particularly keen that the consultation engages with freelance artists and practitioners, ensuring representation from artists who identify as being from the Global Majority and disabled artists, and with a range of organisations and stakeholders across Scotland to understand how this new network or membership collective could meet the needs and priorities of the sector.

They acknowledge that the needs of individual artists and companies differ but that by creating a space where we can develop understanding and provide support we can be better placed to strengthen our sector, building understanding more broadly across the arts in Scotland and advocate for their work to bodies such as Creative Scotland.
