We are seeking to appoint:

Project Coordinator

(fixed term contract up to 31st March 2022, subject to funding)

14hours per week

Based in Cardiff  


£22,627.00 per annum pro rata (Actual £8,447.41 per annum)

How can we imagine equal and decolonised arts when dominant cultural narratives continue to shape our experiences and collective imagination? We propose to work with racially minoritized communities and creatives to establish de-colonised vehicles for culture, combining digital and traditional tools and drawing on African and diasporic cultures. Acting locally but thinking globally, we will build bridges that link Wales and the African continent.

This project brings together leading Black and African voices in Wales; we are united by our experience as African diaspora people in Wales, and share a passion for growing cultural links and mutual relationships between Cymru and the African continent. We want to tap into the potential of diasporic communities in Wales and to build bridges and promote the self-representation of people of African descent in the sector, changing narratives about the continent and about who we are.

 In your role as a project coordinator for Connect & Flourish, you will be responsible for delivery and coordination of events/workshops as well as liasing with partners and creatives taking part on the project.


Successful candidate will be responsible for building strong relationships with our operations teams and work closely with the Director. We encourage young people from minority communities to apply.
