TERRESTRIAL is a new producing organisation dedicated to socially engaged arts projects, community events and wild adventures in the Avon region. Our patch is made up of the four counties of North Somerset, Bristol, South Gloucestershire, and Bath & North East Somerset.
We are looking for somebody who can balance strategy and administrative management
TERRESTRIAL's first programme will take place in Weston-super-Mare, starting this autumn. We have secured funding from Arts Council England, Jerwood Charitable Foundation and North Somerset Council to commission and produce a series of year-long participatory projects, across a range of artforms and scales. Each project will be co-authored by an innovative (inter)national artist/company and an existing community group in Weston, leading towards a festival of co-created works in autumn 2019.
This is a new senior role, which begins as TERRESTRIAL moves from a research phase into its full public launch. We’re heading out into unknown territory, and we need a navigator: an experienced cultural leader who can help us assess the terrain, make sure we are prepared for all eventualities, and guide us towards wild and wonderful places.
We are looking for somebody who can balance strategy (helping to design our model and programme) and administrative management (setting up and overseeing our financial and operational systems) to work alongside Director Tom Spencer through this exciting period.
This position is for one year, fixed term. There will very likely be further senior opportunities at TERRESTRIAL once funding is secured for the next stage of our work.
Closing date: 8th October 2018.
