Creative Waikato is the arts development organisation for the Waikato Region. We’re a high performing team who continue to achieve great things for the arts. We are navigators who lead the elevation of creativity in our region and collaborate to provide opportunities for cultural well-being.
We’re looking for a Creative Education specialist to join our Creative Development team. You will work autonomously and as a part of our team, supporting creative people and arts groups with information, training, and development. This role is about building the capability within the Waikato education sector to support the delivery of arts, culture and creativity as part of the curriculum, as well as to explore opportunities for local artists to provide support in these areas. Creativity is an inherent part of learning. Whenever we try something new, there is an element of creativity involved. Arts learning experiences can be curricular or co-curricular, and within each discipline there can be great variations in the kinds of learning experiences available to students. But these experiences should be a vital part of the education experience in the Waikato, and this role will be working to build capability to support quality delivery of arts and creative education to students in this region. As part of the Creative Waikato team, you will draw upon your experience and knowledge of the arts to help artists, arts organisations, teachers and schools develop their own capability so they can deliver arts and creativity to students in the best possible way.
