East London Dance is hiring:
Artist Support Producer
As East London Dance starts its next pioneering chapter from a new home at The Talent House, we are seeking to appoint a new part time Artist Support Producer
The Artist Support Producer will design, launch and produce East London Dance’s new flagship artist support programme Our House, through regular artist takeovers and a diverse programme of initiatives and events in The Talent House.
You will drive the programme, providing opportunities for the independent workforce to develop skills, build networks, test and present work and reach broad audiences, both live and online. You will have an informed understanding of the needs, interests and barriers of independent artists and producers working in the UK dance scene, as well as the ability to respond to and communicate these internally and through our work, to ensure our programme is relevant and of benefit.
We are looking for a producer with a demonstrable track record in producing and strong connections within the independent dance scene; a self-starter, who is confident in ideas generation and adapting programmes, in line with resource, to provide opportunities for artists to develop their practice. Knowledge of the UK hip hop dance scene is desirable.
You will be able to work collaboratively with artists, partners, funders, staff and local residents, with experience of dance within social contexts. Your work will bring new perspectives into our programme that authentically represent and engage with diverse communities.
- Salary: £18,000 per annum (£30,000 full time equivalent)
- 3 Days (22.5 hours) per week
