Help Shape the Future

We are seeking up to four excellent facilitators to run a range of meetings online (and in person if government guidelines allow) to listen to, explore ideas and encourage radical thinking with a group of up to 75 local cultural and events professionals to help shape and form an action plan for recovery for arts & culture in Brighton & Hove.

They will have clear aims and objectives for each different meeting and will be ideas driven. They will facilitate meetings with up to 75 creative freelancers & project funded organisations in the city and National Portfolio Organisations based in Brighton & Hove.
