A uniquely exciting opportunity has arisen for the right person to work as Arts in Health Project Officer.  The Project Officer will be responsible for leading the ‘Iceberg’ Model Creative Arts Programme, an innovative project that will weave the arts and creativity through the ‘Iceberg’ Transformation Programme, an ambitious initiative to transform how the Health Board and partner organisations respond to and support children’s emotional wellbeing across Gwent.  The right individual for this post will have an interest in and commitment to arts-based approaches and to the mental health and emotional wellbeing of young people.

The postholder will be responsible for developing and delivering a suite of arts projects which they will commission and direct. The postholder will take a professional project management approach that involves considerable responsibility for coordinating projects and activities across the Gwent Region, in conjunction with ABUHB, Local Authority and Third Sector staff, external stakeholders, corporate partners and (crucially) with the population of Gwent. The post holder will be expected to manage their own time and workload, delivering to set deadlines and working effectively within a fast-paced and continually evolving multi-agency environment.

This post is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
