Charity registered in Scotland SC032430
Established in 1994, Impact Arts is a forward-thinking community arts organisation which uses the arts and creativity to enable and empower social change.
We consider the arts as a positive tool for change –helping people to build confidence, attain new skills, get back into work or education, source work in the creative arts, enjoy better health or simply improve quality of life. From dance to digital, our door is always open.
We work collaboratively with children, young people, older people and communities to achieve our aims. We work predominantly, but not exclusively, with vulnerable groups.
We use innovation, enterprise and creative approaches alongside outstanding delivery, sound management and a strong ethos of partnership to tackle society’s big issues.
Our talented in-house and freelance artists in Glasgow, Edinburgh, Ayrshire and beyond, ensure that our artistic programmes, exhibitions, performances and events are of the highest quality. We exist to inspire creativity in people and regenerate our communities through a deep, rewarding relationship with the arts. #artchangeslives
Established in 1994, Impact Arts is a national arts organisation which tackles inequalities in Scotland through creative engagement. We envisage a Scotland where everyone values and benefits from the power of creativity to transform lives.
Impact Arts has a long history of working across Glasgow and the West Coast, delivering high quality youth engagement and community based work. The role of Glasgow and the West Programme Manager is essential within our organisation and reflects our growing work across Glasgow and the surrounding areas.
The role of Glasgow and the West Programme Manager is predominately focussed on leading our young people and employability programmes. This will compliment our existing Programme Manager in Glasgow who will lead on Children and Community based programmes. It is expected that the successful candidate will take full ownership of our youth programmes and lead on all aspects of delivery alongside the freelance/core creative and pastoral teams.
Impact Arts has a long history across Edinburgh and the Lothians, delivering high quality youth engagement, creative ageing and community based work. The role of East Coast Programme Manager is essential within our organisation and reflects the increased focus we are giving to growing our work across Edinburgh and the surrounding areas.
The role of East Coast Programme Manager is wide ranging, incorporating a number of key policy areas and being responsible for delivery across youth employability and attainment, community regeneration and older people. We do not expect the successful candidate to have experience in all of these areas, but they must be able to demonstrate adaptability and excellence in co-ordination and programme management.
We are looking for someone who is dynamic, who will bring considerable experience, creativity, energy and passion to the role and who wants to join our mission in tackling inequalities across Scotland.
