Description

Pyramid’s mission is to invest in people with a learning disability through the discovery, development and disruption of the arts.

Our goal is to help people with a learning disability to discover the arts, develop their talents to become world-class artists, and to disrupt the social and institutional barriers that prevent them from being recognised, supported and celebrated.  

We are looking for a highly motivated and efficient individual with practical project delivery experience. 

This is a rare opportunity for the right candidate to take a leading role in a project which is exciting, innovative and will uphold Pyramid’s reputation as a national leader in inclusive arts practice.

  • Non-learning disabled residents of Bramley who actively engage in the project through volunteering and training
