ENDED: Job Vacancy: Participation Producer

Strike A Light are seeking a creative, dynamic Participation Producer to join our team.

Our vision is that Gloucester is a city of vibrant culture for all and we see arts and participation as key to this. We are a fast growing charity and Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation, responding to new ideas and trying different ways of working. We programme two festivals of nationally renowned contemporary performance per year, offer youth residencies and classes and support artists to produce new work.

We are looking for someone to coordinate and manage the delivery of our participation offer and work with young audiences. Ideally you will be passionate about young people’s access to the arts, be motivated by creative ideas and have a healthy love of organisation. You will be confident at engaging young people, communicating with schools and encouraging communities to get involved.     

The role is offered on a freelance basis with a fixed fee of £6,500. We anticipate that this role will equate to approximately 2.5 days per week. The post is offered on a six month contract (with the possibility of extension) whilst our current Participation Producer is on maternity leave.  

We are also open to applications from candidates who are practitioners and would be interested in delivering some of our youth theatre or youth dance sessions alongside the Participation Producer role.

We are committed to creating a team which is representative of the diverse communities we work with and to bringing together those with a variety of skills and experiences, to help shape what we do and how we work. We are particularly keen to hear from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) candidates.
