At Impact Arts we believe that everyone can be creative so we use the arts to help people make positive lasting change in their lives, whether they are 3 or 93 years old. Across our flagship programmes, we work with young people to help them increase their future life prospects and prevent homelessness, and older people to prevent isolation and loneliness and encourage social inclusion. Established in 1994 from our base in Glasgow we now operate across Scotland. Impact Arts employs more than 50 staff and over 200 freelance artists.

Craft Café is a project that aims to reduce isolation and loneliness for people aged 55+ through engagement in arts and craft activities, inspiration trips and social e vents.

This is an exciting opportunity for involvement in the direct delivery of an arts project within a community setting. You will be assisting a specialist tutor in a range of practical activities, thereby learning the basics of workshop delivery and organisation. This will also provide an opportunity to develop a range of practical and personal skills and abilities.

As Creative Assistant you will also provide administration support to the project which may include word processing, updating of databases, spreadsheets, mail duties, photocopying, faxing, maintaining stationery stock and materials.
