Freelance Learning Associate (Spirits of the Sea - May – July 2019)
Fee: £4,500 (approx. 30 days @ £150 per day)

Theatre Hullabaloo is a pioneering organisation that makes, tours and promotes theatre for young audiences. Our home is The Hullabaloo, a new purpose-designed theatre for children and families in Darlington, but our broad portfolio of work extends nationally and internationally.
We are looking to appoint a Learning Associate to devise and deliver an education package to support, Spirits of the Sea, a show for 7-11 year olds, which will tour to community and school settings across Tees Valley in June and July 2019 as part of Great Place Tees Valley.
Spirits of the Sea is a 35-minute immersive performance where the audience are invited into a mariner’s hut to hear a story which is animated through live music, shadow puppetry, object manipulation and song. The show has been devised and developed by Theatre Hullabaloo as a creative way to support teachers in their delivery of the social and emotional wellbeing curriculum and to help families to discuss mental health issues, such as anxiety, with their children in an age appropriate way.
The Learning Associate should be a dynamic and experienced arts education practitioner with a proven track record in the development of creative approaches to learning and in the delivery of workshops with Key Stage 2 children.
The contract includes a number of elements; -
(1) Devising of the learning programme in collaboration with the Artistic Producer and creative team, including development of any agreed resources to support the programme. Consultation with CAMHS services about signposting and content development will be a key part of this phase (approx. 6 days)
(2) Delivery of agreed workshop content with participating school groups in a combination of settings, including within schools (approx. 20 days)
(3) Coordination of Arts Award activities with participating schools and moderation of Discover or Explore Arts Awards with a minimum of 40 young people (3 days)
(4) Reflection and evaluation with Theatre Hullabaloo, including recommendations for future learning elements connected to Spirits of the Sea (1 day)
The successful candidate will meet the following criteria; -
• Experienced in the devising and delivery of dynamic creative learning programmes
• Trained Arts Award Advisor (Discover / Explore)
• Experienced in the delivery of workshops with KS2 children
• Has own transport
• Holds a current Enhanced DBS check and is willing to work within Theatre Hullabaloo’s Safeguarding policy and protocols
Experience of using creative approaches to tackling themes around mental health and an awareness of this area of practice and policy is an advantage, as is a North East base.
Application is by letter and CV outlining your interest and experience, which should be received no later than Monday 29th April. To discuss the project further, please contact Miranda Thain, Artistic Producer,
