This is a significant moment for Kiln Theatre, a year on from re-opening and in anticipation of next year’s Brent London Borough of Culture 2020, we are looking for Assistant Facilitators to support the planning, delivery and evaluation of ‘The Agency’ - our weekly workshops with young people aged 15-25.
