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)

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.
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.
