About B arts

B arts was founded in 1985 as an artist led co-operative committed to breaking down barriers between people and the arts, and to make the arts happen where and in ways that mean people can easily engage with them. We have always worked with people excluded from the mainstream, those undervalued by society, whether at home in Stoke-on-Trent, in North Staffordshire or across the UK and the world.

Our vision is of a society where everyone has an equal chance to take part, and by taking part can make change for the better in themselves, their place and their communities.

We are now seeking a Creative Bakery Support Worker for our bakery-based projects; Chatty Café and Rise.

The Chatty Café operates as a public facing food offer, open on a Tuesday between 11.00 and 2pm, staffed by the Regent college group and the B arts team. Regent College is a learning provider for young adults with a range of needs and disabilities. Together with a B arts team, at our Bread in Common Café, a group of learners from Regent College and their support staff have delivered the Chatty Café for two terms.

Rise is a programme piloted in 2018, that supports a group of adults, who are unemployed on 3 x 6 week courses. The courses use cooking and baking and eating together as the focus for the programme, alongside which we create personal development plans with each participant and sign post them to further volunteering and job opportunities. Each Rise session takes place on one day per week.
