Facilitator Panel Open Call - Westmeath Libraries 2022

Westmeath Libraries is planning a diverse range of programming during the coming year.

We wish to invite submissions from facilitators seeking to join a panel for programming during 2022/23.

Facilitators for the panel may be chosen to deliver workshops, specialist talks, storytelling, and other tailored events to children, adults and specialist groups. We welcome events held through both Irish and English.

We are seeking facilitators in the following areas:

STEAM: STEAM activities can be as diverse as Coding, Robotics, Fun Science, Virtual Reality, Electronics, and Creative Technologies. Activities may also include visual art workshops, storytelling, drama and creative writing. Activities can also focus on technology, such as development of skills in use of new technologies including: 3D Design, Audio Recording & Editing, Image Editing, Video Recording & Editing, Virtual Reality, Smart phone photography.

Climate Change: Events raising awareness of climate change, as well as talks and workshops with an emphasis on the practical side, such as gardening and up-cycling workshops.

Music: Performances and workshops

Creativity: wide range of activities that encourages and develops creativity in all ages.

Age Friendly: activities and events that ensure the voices of older people are represented and promote the wellbeing and quality of life of all citizens and communities.

Wellbeing: workshops and events with a focus on health and wellbeing, including but not limited to mindfulness, yoga, and play therapy.

While we hope to provide events in-person, it is important that all activities can be delivered online if the need arises and that facilitators have the appropriate expertise to deliver quality programmes online.

Where working with children, compliance is essential with appropriate legislation with regards to Health and Safety and Children First.
