Forgan Arts Centre (FAC) is seeking to recruit two Play Workers to support the delivery of our Summer Art Club for children aged 5-12 years. This position is suitable for someone interested in further developing a career working with children and young people in a creative setting.

 

FAC’s Summer Art Club offers children quality arts, crafts, and outdoor activities across July and August.
