Illustration Workshop Facilitation at Routes Youth Centre - Short Term Contract
$130/workshop for 2 workshops
Routes Youth Centre is a space for Dundas & area youth aged 8-19. Routes offers a number of programs to help facilitate growth, provide support, encourage skill-building and offer low-barrier recreation opportunities in a community setting. We offer both drop-in and structured programming for youth, in addition to off-site trips. Routes is committed to fostering a welcoming space for youth and staff, and works to advocate for social justice and human rights while challenging oppression through its work in the community.
Routes youth have shown a recent interest and passion for cartooning and illustration. To support and develop this interest, Routes will be offering a short workshop series on creating comics and illustrated characters.
Routes is seeking an artist or arts educator to facilitate two (2) illustration workshops for youth ages 8 to 19-years-old. The workshop series will occur over two days, but the timing is flexible based on the artist’s schedule. The artist will offer 2 one-hour sessions per workshop, with one session designed for youth ages 8 to 12-years-old and the following session for youth ages 13 to 19-years-old. Routes staff will be present to support youth engagement, but the artist will lead the workshop. Routes will provide youth materials based on the artist’s material list and the artist would be required to bring their own materials for demonstration.
We thank all applicants for their interest in Routes Youth Centre; however, only candidates selected for an interview will be contacted.
Routes Youth Centre strives to create a safe space and a workplace that reflects the diversity of the people we work with. Please contact email@example.com to discuss how we can best provide accommodation and meet your needs during the hiring process.
