Theatre Workshop Leader

Are you an inspiring workshop leader looking for your next challenge? Do you have experience of working in East Africa? Do you want to further your career in one of the UK's leading research intensive Universities?

This post is to support AHRC-funded project ‘Using arts-based workshops to share knowledge on reproductive and sexual heath with rural communities in Nyanza, western Kenya'. The project is led by Jane Plastow, Professor of African Theatre in the School of English, University of Leeds.

This Follow-On Funding project will be delivered in western Kenya and you should be available to travel to the country by mid-August 2021. You will be required to stay in Kenya for the following three months on a full-time basis, followed by a further evaluation trip the following year, and writing reports and articles based on the work. The project involves: a) creating performance/workshops with local actors to be toured to 40 contiguous rural villages to inform communities about contraception and related topics; b) working with local out-of-school youth in the same area to create two youth theatre groups discussing issues of sexual and reproductive health in accordance with their priorities as ascertained through prior research workshops; c) assisting in the evaluation, report-writing and conference presentations resulting from the project. You will work with Professor Jane Plastow and Professor Christopher Odhiambo (Moi University, Kenya).

You will be an experienced theatre workshop leader, with good experience of working with both adult and youth community groups in East Africa and preferably in Kenya. It also requires a knowledge of issues related to sexual and reproductive health in the region. You will be a resilient, self-starting individual, able to work independently but in good communication with all involved in the project. You will need to be able to meet the immigration requirements to work in Kenya.
