Opportunity Summary:

Random Line is a professional arts based organisation producing very high quality work at a national level. People can become involved within this work at several levels: as participants in workshops/events, as participants in projects, as members of an audience or as a core member of the company. Core members are the artists at the heart of the company. To become a core member people must demonstrate a high level of interest, commitment, enthusiasm and have support to enable them to take a full part in a busy programme. Random Line supports people through all stages of this process - starting as participants in projects/workshops and developing into a core member, taking full responsibility for performances and projects. We have seen individuals transform and develop a personal confidence that would be hard to attain through any other process. For more detail please see the case studies on the website at http://www.randomline.co.uk/html/the_company.html. The artistic work of Random Line is developed in collaboration with Artistic Director, Andrew Williams a multi media artist.
