Transform is seeking a new Producer to join the team, with a specific focus on supporting and empowering creative people. We are seeking someone who is dedicated to co-creation and artist development, and who wants to nurture a new inclusive generation of creatives and change-makers within an international festival context.
Since Transform’s formation, we have been committed to supporting artists in the Leeds City Region and wider North to develop their practise and produce bold new work. In recent years, we have also focused on developing innovative models of co-creation with younger people. We now have an exciting opportunity to build upon and connect this practise, fundamentally involving younger people in how our international festivals are conceived and curated alongside extending and enhancing our support for artists in the region.
The new Producer (Creative People) will be instrumental in realising our bold vision and developing Transform as an inclusive organisation. This new role will focus on supporting younger people in the region to discover their agency and be part of reimagining what a festival of the future can look like and represent. At the same time, they will connect and enhance our artist development work and build upon Transform’s vital role in the region’s creative ecology.
A successful candidate will be able to work flexibly and supportively with younger people and artists at an important point in their career development. They will have a strong interest in developing the creative ecology in the Leeds City Region and wider North and an international sensibility. Committed to foregrounding access, inclusion and care they will see the potential of an international festival to be co-created and owned by a wider range of artists and communities.
If you like to make things happen and to support people to be creative and realise their potential, and want to explore and develop ways to do this within the context of an international festival - we want to hear from you.
We particularly encourage applications from people who are currently under-represented within the UK arts sector - including those from lower socio-economic backgrounds, who are ethnically and culturally diverse and who experience racism, who are disabled and neuro-diverse.
