We’re seeking a musician/ facilitator to deliver an exciting participatory project sitting at the intersection of Folk, Punk and Activism.  

You may be a singer, a musician or a poet but you should have an interest in traditional song, contemporary punk and/ or activist themes, and willing to do some research to build your repertoire.  

You might be an experienced facilitator or just starting out on your journey of working with young people, but you should be confident in your skills and passionate enough about music to be able to communicate this to a group of diverse young people aged roughly between 14 and 25. The young people engaging in this project may have little to no knowledge or previous engagement with these specific genres.  

This project will run over six workshops based at The Met in Bury between June and September 2024 and end with a celebration evening.  

This project is part of the Access Folk Research project being undertaken by the University of Sheffield.  

Please get in touch with steph.meskellbrocken@themet.org.uk for a full rundown of the project aims, outcomes, and target audiences and to start a conversation about the role.

The deadline for expressing interest in this opportunity is Friday 17th May 2024
