Artist Support Programme Producer
Contract: Permanent, full-time
Deadline for applications: 5pm on 21 August 2021
Interview date: w/c 30 August
The Artist Support Programme Producer is a key part of our Producing team and involves working directly with artists to support their aims and ambitions delivering a range of professional development activities, for artists and arts professionals.
The role coordinates and programmes effective support for artists and arts professionals working within the areas of live art, contemporary performance and interdisciplinary arts. Specialising in contemporary performance practice, Artsadmin collaborates with artists of all ages, from those who are new to making work to artists who have established careers. The role will also involve collaborating with the wider team at Artsadmin on specific projects.
Following a period of strategic review and planning, Artsadmin’s Artist Support has been integrated and aligned with other strands of artistic practice within Artsadmin. It now focused on three key areas: one-on-one Creative Support Sessions, Radar – a dynamic and responsive programme of artist support events and online resources, and the management of two new Artsadmin programmes – Artsadmin Lab and Artsadmin Artist in Residence. In this context, we are seeking to employ an experienced producer to deliver these key elements of the programme as it stands and imaginatively programme Radar sessions with their own flair.
Our anti-racist work on recruitment and retention
We are a friendly team comprising around 24 people where everyone’s contribution is valued. We acknowledge both that Artsadmin is currently a majority white organisation and our need to become an organisation that reflects the diversity of the country around us. This can only be addressed through deep, ongoing, active anti-racist training and policy-making, which is now underway.
For recruitment, we are committed to ensuring that there is:
- At least one person of colour on the interview panel
- A chance to meet some of the team at interview stage to give insight into the organisational culture, as well as a chance to ask questions outside the interview
Once in the role, any successful candidate who is a person of colour will have access to an external coach or mentor to provide support in a majority white community. This support will be paid for by Artsadmin.
If you have any questions please email email@example.com. This email account is regularly checked.
Access support is available for all applications, including alternative formats and tailored support. If, for access reasons, you’d prefer to meet one of our team to talk through these guidelines or would like to submit your application in another format like video, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 7247 5102.
Access support for the application process
If you need an access worker to help you to apply, we understand it is good practice that this is someone nominated by the applicant requiring assistance, as many people will regularly use the same note taker or interpreter. You can request this support by emailing email@example.com. We can pay for support such as:
- Note taking support to help a disabled applicant in meetings or to complete the application form.
- British sign language (BSL) interpretation support for Deaf applicants in one-to-one meetings and translation of applications made in BSL into English.
- Personal assistants for people with experience of the mental health system and for people with learning disabilities.
We will be working on the basis of up to £200 per day of support towards access. A quote for the access support services will need to be obtained and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org then a fee agreed with us for its delivery. The access support worker should submit their invoice to Artsadmin. Once we have confirmed with you that work has been carried out satisfactorily, we can authorise payment.
The provision of access support does not require an application to be submitted. Applicants can access information on our commission and then decide not to apply.
For open call and opportunities, awards or commissions for artists, we cannot pay for project development, such as the cost of an arts worker, development consultant, producer or bid writer to help people apply or translate from verbal languages (other than British Sign Language).
Access support for employees
If you are successful in getting a job at Artsadmin, we would do an access requirement audit as part of the induction process to identify and make a plan to meet your access needs. We have experience in supporting employees with Access to Work applications.
