Magic Me is the UK’s leading provider of intergenerational arts activities and creative arts with care home residents, with a 30+ year track record. Our arts projects challenge young and older people to stretch themselves and what they think they can do and be. Participants learn new skills, share their ideas and feelings, and become comfortable collaborating with people who are different in age, ethnicity or life experience.

Magic Me has been awarded 3 years of public funding by Arts Council England, as we become one of their National Portfolio Organisations.  From April 2023, this funding will support our ambitious programme of new work alongside growing our existing projects. We’re looking for a Project Coordinator to join us on this journey. Arts have a vital role to play in post-pandemic community building and this is a crucial and exciting time in Magic Me’s development.

You will have some professional or personal experience organising events or workshops in a community setting, and enjoy making things happen through practical and administrative tasks. Through this role you will develop skills to confidently communicate with a wide range of people, build relationships and get conversations going. 

“It is because of people like you that communities are stronger and people are more confident and less lonely. Thank you.” – Magic Me Participant
