Notnow Collective is looking for a Parent Ambassador for our audience development programme in collaboration with Attenborough Arts Centre, Leicester.
Notnow Collective specialise in the baby-friendly, baby-welcoming and baby-proof shows for adults. We welcome babies into our performances and want to enable our audiences to enjoy a great night out at daytime, without needing to spend money on the babysitter.
Parents of young children often feel isolated and found a great benefit in coming to theatre performances geared at them, but fully welcoming of their children. At the same time, this is not something often seen or offered and therefore we need to find ways of letting our parent audiences know what is happening in their local venue.
We have now been awarded funding to engage with outside collaborators within the local community to help us develop future audiences for this work.
We are looking for an individual who is a parent/carer local to Leicester, and very well plugged into local parent-baby groups, activities and places and local parents network.
You don’t need to be from the art background, but should be curious about widening the ways parents of young children can engage in activities that are geared at them, not just the babies.
This is a paid opportunity on a freelance contract basis (£15 per hour) ideally suited to an individual on the parental leave, stay-at-home parent or a part-time/freelance worker. It will require about 10-12hrs of work over a period of 6 weeks.
To apply please write a cover letter introducing yourself and explaining why is this opportunity of interest and how you think you might contribute to this activity. Please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with “PARENT AMBASSADOR” in the subject line. Deadline for applications is 4th May 2018. The interviews will be held at Attenborough Arts Centre the following week and will be fully welcoming of children.
