Project Facilitator – Shared History Project – closing 27 Sept

Ballynafeigh Community Development Association (BCDA) is seeking a Project Facilitator for a Shared History project.

BCDA’s Shared History project represents an opportunity to gather, write and collate untold stories of Ballynafeigh.
We hope to bring the unusual story of Ballynafeigh to life and to document what the district looked like in 1921 and how it has changed throughout the century to the present day.

BCDA hopes to do this by engagement with the local community, exploring the many issues which will arise as part of the process.

It will be a means of exploring the past, present, and how to envisage the future by embracing diverse perspectives and showcasing a range of voices.

The Project Worker will co-ordinate the above activities and liaise with Media and Graphic Design companies to incorporate project output to BCDA website and exhibition panels.

Scope of role – 2-3 days/week over 6 months (Oct 21-Mar 22), fee £5000
