Opportunity for a Resource Developer

Opportunity for a Resource Developer – Songbook project, HMP Low Newton

We’re teaming up with Helix Arts for a special project, as part of which we are seeking someone who can create a resource pack of activities inspired by creative materials. The resource pack is aimed at assisting professionals working within the criminal justice sector to deliver outcomes related to reducing the re-offending of women and girls.

A team of artists are currently working with women with severe personality disorders at HMP Low Newton to create a songbook. This songbook will use the power of music and spoken word to connect the experiences of women in the secure estate with women on community sentences to help address underlying issues impacting on offending behaviours. We seek to create a resource to accompany the songbook that uses the music/stories of the women as inspiration for activities.

Fee available: £4,000 (including VAT and expenses)

Project time-scale: Beginning of January to end November 2015

Location: Durham and Newcastle upon Tyne

Application deadline: Thursday 13th November 2014, 12pm.

A full brief, including details of how to apply, is available here: Opportunity for a Resource Developer – Songbook project
