What we're looking for
Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff is an exciting project, delivered in partnership with the City of Cardiff Council and Buglife, inspiring and enabling more children and their families to spend more time more regularly outdoors with nature. Playing the part of Rod the Heron you'll take on a central role at our Giving Nature a Home in Cardiff events and activities for families. We need you to bring a sense of theatre and performance to our work with the public, to catch people's attention and imagination with our 8ft heron puppet. We need you to work in tandem with another volunteer to operate and animate Rod. Taking on the full character of a heron we need you to walk, stalk and interact with the public to stop people in their tracks and create an experience they won't forget. You'll need to be confident, outgoing and willing to be the centre of attention whilst staying fully within the character you've created. You'll have initiative and imagination to take on the role of Rod, trial, improvise and hone his character, making it your own and with it bring playfulness and creativity to your role.
