Rickshaw Theatre Project: Opportunity!


Applications are now open to tour manage The Rickshaw Theatre Project
2016!

The Rickshaw Theatre Project provides a unique opportunity to pursue
interests in many different fields: education, drama, travel,
development and cultural exchange.

We are looking for two enthusiastic and committed people to become the
tour managers for this year’s Education and Theatre trip around India
and Nepal. Over the past nine years, Cambridge students have travelled
to India and Nepal in August/September visiting schools and NGOs with
the aim of taking theatre to disadvantaged children and teenagers. The
aims of Rickshaw Theatre Project include using drama as a means to help
these children build self-confidence, lasting relationships and teach
other valuable life skills through this medium. To learn more about the
project itself, and the trips in 2015 and previous years, visit our
blog: https://rickshawtheatre2015.wordpress.com/ [1] .

The role of the tour managers will be to co-ordinate and lead this trip;
a hugely exciting opportunity for anyone with a flair for organisation
and a passion for travel and theatre!

Applications should include:
What excites you about the project?
Why do you think you would be good for this role? You may include an
outline of any relevant experience.
A discussion of any problems you think the project may present and how
you will combat them.

Applications will be taken individually or in pairs, with the aim of
having tour managers selected and ready to assemble the rest of the team
in February. Please note, taking this role will involve considerable
commitment across Lent/Exams terms as well as the summer. Further, the
costs of the trip will most likely come to over £1,000, but there is
scope for considerable fundraising, so do not let this put you off
applying.

Application deadline is Saturday 9th January, with interviews falling
soon after, and applications should be sent to Phoebe and Rebecca at
rickshawtheatreproject2015@gmail.com. Please feel free to contact us if
you have any questions, or would like to meet informally to discuss the
project.
