Vacancy: Arts Producer

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. 

Salary£21,443 – £23,825 (Full time equivalent: £26,446 to £29,384)

Contract period: Fixed term for 12 months: May 2021 – May 2022

Hours: Part time: 4 days a week (30 hours per week) We are open to job share applications or proposals to do 3 days a week if 4 days is not possible due to other commitments or needs.

The role  

We are looking to recruit an organised, excellent communicator, who loves working with people to make amazing things happen. Our ideal candidate would be a producer who is excited about working across artforms, experimenting and co-creating in community contexts, who is equally as passionate about processes as they are about sharing brilliant outcomes and powerful stories.

The Arts Producer will be comfortable with creative tech and innovative digital arts practices.

We particularly welcome and encourage applications from those currently underrepresented in our workforce and in the arts community; particularly any applicant who identifies as working-class, a person of colour, transgender, non-binary or genderqueer, D/deaf, visually impaired, disabled or neurodivergent.

Free creative resource for families to reduce household waste

To coincide with Global Recycling Day, KWMC The Factory has released a free, family-friendly magazine filled with stories and advice for reducing household waste – and getting creative while you do it.

The magazine includes a range of tutorials, activities and puzzles inspired by The Factory’s recent project ReThink ReMake ReCycle, where residents of South Bristol came together to explore the scale and environmental impact of common household waste materials such as paper and plastics.

Working with The Factory team and designer Lisa Cole, 48 people across 22 households took part in a series of online workshops to look more closely at the kind of materials they threw away, and how they could design and make sustainable alternatives.

The sessions focused on three themes:

ReThink: think carefully about how we can reduce or repurpose our waste

ReMake: make DIY alternatives that are reusable or use more sustainable materials

ReCycle: recycle our waste, turning it into useful materials and objects

Don’t worry if you don’t have a printer: the magazine has been saved as an interactive document so you can download a copy, click on the framed boxes and type your notes directly into the document.

You can find out more about the ReThink ReMake ReCycle project here or contact thefactory@kwmc.org.uk of you have any questions or would like to talk to us about our work in sustainable manufacturing.

Global Recycling Day

KWMC The Factory published the magazine to coincide with Global Recycling Day on Thursday 18 March – an annual event created in 2018 by The Global Recycling Foundation to ‘help recognise, and celebrate, the importance recycling plays in preserving our precious primary resources and securing the future of our planet.’

The theme of Global Recycling Day 2021 is #RecyclingHeroes, which will recognise ‘the people, places and activities that showcase what an important role recycling plays in contributing to an environmentally stable planet and a greener future which will benefit all.’
