CA. £50,000 - 60,000 - FULL OR PART TIME
DEADLINE: 25 AUGUST 2009
Founded in 2008, Sound and Music is a brand new organisation formed from the legacy of four of this country’s long-standing lead organisations dedicated to the national and international promotion of new music and sound art.
SAM combines live events activity, learning and participation opportunities, digital platforms and information resources to add depth and richness to the experience of audiences and users when they engage with new music and sound.
Audience development and market growth are key objectives for Sound and Music. It aims to deliver not only a first rate programme for its core users and supporters, but to reach new audiences and offer new experiences.
Reporting to the Executive Director, the Creative Director will bring creative leadership to Sound and Music and engage with the whole team to develop a shared artistic vision for the organisation.
S/he will bring inspiration and support to the delivery of a broad programme of work encompassing a wide range of genres, which grows audiences, is innovative, challenging and informs practice across the whole contemporary arts sector.
Candidates will have broad knowledge of the field with evidence of a wide appreciation for all genres that the organisation will deal with as well as experience of dealing with the public sector. They must be able to evidence entrepreneurial leadership and effective team working skills together with experience of developing external relationships.
At this key time in its emergence, Sound and Music seeks a dynamic individual with the drive and ambition to grasp the agenda and continue to develop this exciting organisation.
