Parent Ambassadors call-out: Derby and Wolverhampton

Derby & Wolverhampton: Parent Ambassador call-out

Notnow Collective is looking for Parent Ambassadors for our audience development programme in collaboration with Derby Theatre and Wolverhampton’s Arena Theatre. The parent ambassadors will work on helping reach audiences for Notnow Collective’s show DadMan: The Bathtime Warrior in each city.

We are looking for individuals who are a parent/carer local to Derby or Wolverhampton, and very well plugged into local parent-baby groups, activities and places and local parents network.

You don’t need to be from an arts 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.

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.

This is a voluntary opportunity requiring 10-12hrs of work. Parent Ambassador activities will include:

  • Taking out posters and flyers for different events and productions to different areas and places in the community.
  • Spreading the word, via word of mouth, to target groups and individuals for DadMan: The Bathtime Warrior

If you are interested in becoming a parent ambassador please email Claire, Notnow Collective Audience Development Officer – claire@notnowcollective.com. Please include your name, email address and home address and whether you are associated with a particular group or organisation in the area.
