We are Recruiting for BHM 2022!

Bigfoot Arts Education is currently recruiting for Performer/Facilitators to deliver its’ Black History Month tour in primary schools in London and the Home Counties during October 2022.  

We are looking for people who: 

  • Have an African or Caribbean heritage 
  • Have proven experience delivering workshops to large groups of children, ideally within primary school settings 
  • Have strong acting and/or storytelling skills 
  • Have bags of energy and enthusiasm and big personalities 
  • Have a good rapport with children 
  • Are available to take the Bigfoot Induction Course on 12th September – this will enable you to deliver a wide spectrum of work for Bigfoot throughout the year as well as the Black History Month programme. Please see the website for information on the type of work available: www.bigfootartseducation.co.uk 
  • Are available for rehearsals on 21st and 22nd September  
  • Have very good availability during the month of October, last week of September and first week of November 
  • Have a passion for celebrating Black History and engaging young people in the topic 
  • Are not restricted or barred from working with children or young people 

We take bookings from schools right up until the month of October itself and so the tour schedule will not be set in stone until very close to the time, it may even change once the tour is up and running so a certain amount of flexibility during the month of October is therefore desirable. Due to the nature of the way that we work with schools, it will also be impossible to say how many dates you will be given ahead of time. 

Fees 

  • Half Day Rehearsal/Tour: £100 
  • Full Day Rehearsal/Tour: £150 

Auditions 

We will be holding auditions on Thursday 28th July at The Devas Club, Clapham. Successful candidates will be required to perform a monologue from one of the existing programmes and facilitate a drama game or exercise.  

Application 

In order to apply please send a CV and Headshot to Gail Clark gail@bigfootartseducation.co.uk by Monday 18th July.
