We have recently been funded by the National Lottery Community Fund to produce another zine. Working with zine and textile artist Seleena Laverne Daye and poet Ella Otomewo, we will collect the stories and creative work of LGBTQ+ people from across the North of England for inclusion in a zine to be published in Autumn 2021.
We are looking to recruit a freelance Assistant Producer to work with us on this project and other projects in development.
We use the term ‘producer’ to mean someone who makes things happen. This role will assist with the work of programme production and marketing. It is intended that this role is offered as a way for those relatively new to the arts or events industry to gain valuable experience in producing. We are happy to discuss with candidates how and where we can best help you gain the experience needed for next the steps in your chosen career.
As part of this contract we will also be offering the successful candidate three x 1 hour coaching sessions with an independent life coach to be used in whatever way feels useful for you at this point in your career.
If you are interested in supporting processes to make creative projects happen, have a good set of organisational skills, and experience in using social media to reach customers, audiences or communities, then this role could be for you!
Here’s a word from our current Assistant Producer, Emma Bentley Fox . . .
I found Andro & Eve at a point where securing a job in the arts (let alone a rewarding and challenging one) felt like a huge mountain that I’d never climb. I’m beyond grateful to Andro & Eve and Finn for giving me the opportunity to develop my skills as a producer and connect with amazing Queer artists, in a supportive and nurturing environment. I can’t recommend this role enough and I’m gutted to be leaving it, but also glad that someone else gets to share the experiences I’ve had and develop new queer talent in The North of England!”
As well as supporting a wide range of artists, our team have lived experiences that enable them to support inclusive practices. We particularly encourage applications from those currently under-represented within the UK arts sector, including those of Black, Asian or other global majority ethnicity, those who have faced socio – economic barriers, those who identify as LGBTQI+ and those who are disabled or neurodiverse.
FEE: £120 per day. 10 days work offered Jul – Nov 2021. Total fee £1200.
BENEFITS: Three x 1 hour life coaching sessions with an independent life coach
APPLICATION DEADLINE – MIDDAY MONDAY 28 JUNE
