darts Creative Health Connector

darts is Doncaster’s award-winning creative health charity – the largest participatory arts organisation in the UK.

Our programmes are open to everyone, particularly those with least access to the arts.

We are looking for someone with a genuine passion and understanding of the role that art, culture and other creative activities can have for our health and wellbeing.

We want to work with someone who believes in our Arts & Health Board vision that ‘Everybody in Doncaster can access participatory creative activities, resulting in them feeling happier, healthier and more resilient.’
