Knowle West Media Centre enables creativity, innovation and positive social change, supporting communities, artists, and people of all ages to make the changes they want to see in their lives and neighbourhoods. This social purpose is at the heart of everything we do at KWMC Leinster Avenue and KWMC The Factory.
We offer varied and challenging roles to people who want to help us achieve our objectives – whether you’re an expert in finance, digital manufacturing or technology, a community worker or creative producer. We also have a diverse range of other opportunities – such as professional development schemes and artist residencies.
Knowle West Media Centre is seeking a proactive producer who loves working with arts and technology in a community context and believes in the power of co-creation to achieve better futures for everyone.
The Arts Producer will develop and deliver our innovative socially-engaged arts programme, and deliver an exciting new project, ‘Come Together’. Come Together will explore ways to re-occupy and re-create the shared spaces and experiences we desperately need now, in order to connect and come together. It will support artists and communities to develop new skills, approaches and tools for creating, making and sharing art and cultural experiences in hybrid (physical plus digital) ways.
