The Derby Creative Arts Network (CAN) will programme cultural events (theatre, music, outdoor and indoor arts experiences) in community settings across the city. We’ll also be putting events into the city’s venues like Derby Theatre and into regular festivals like Derby Festé.

Reimagine is a unique partnership project working with leading cultural organisations across the city. It provides young people the opportunity to participate in exciting and high-quality arts, sports and cultural activities in their schools or communities, by reimagining spaces and places as different performances spaces i.e. parks, chip shops etc.

Please state on the application form which role you would like to apply for, you can also apply for both as a full time position, just state this on the application form.
