Lit Reach Project Officer
Deadline: Wed 25 Oct 2017
This part-time role with Literature Wales will be responsible for delivering and developing the Lit Reach/ LlĂȘn Pawb project in North Wales.

Literature Wales believes that literature belongs to everybody and can be found everywhere. The aim is to improve opportunities for people of all background and abilities to engage in literature activities throughout Wales. Lit Reach/ Llên Pawb is a new literature participation project, which builds on two previous Literature Wales initiatives (the Gwynedd Literature Promotion Scheme and the South Wales Literature Development Initiative).

The purpose of Llên Pawb / Lit Reach is to deliver projects specifically targeting vulnerable groups and individuals. These include people who are at risk of becoming socially disengaged, as well as those who may not have engaged with mainstream arts and culture before. By working with a range of partners the aim is to stimulate and support sustainable literary activity in the community. These activities will encourage self-expression; improve personal skills; lifelong learning; youth social engagement; and health and wellbeing.

Llên Pawb / Lit Reach is funded by Arts Council Wales, eight Local Authorities (Conwy, Gwynedd, Denbighshire, Caerphilly, Newport, Vale of Glamorgan, Neath Port Talbot and Torfaen) as well as the Snowdonia National Park Authority. Literature Wales will work with these partners to deliver the project.
