The post of Get In Project Coordinator provides an exciting opportunity to develop and lead The Touring Network’s new youth promoters project, Get In. This is a challenging role that demands enthusiasm, energy, and excellent intergenerational skills.
Volunteer promoters play a vital role in the programming and presentation of high quality performance in even the most remote regions of the Highland and Islands. The Touring Network is ensuring the sustainability of this important part of rural cultural life by offering 20 young people each year the opportunity to become confident and knowledgable promoters.
The youth promoters project is targeted at the 16-26 age group, and it is a key aim that 40% of these individuals will be non-traditional arts attenders and/or from the NEET group. As well as training in skills relevant to promoting, the young promoters will be paired with an established promoter, who will act as their mentor, and the project will culminate in a Highland tour of exceptional quality, programmed and promoted by the young promoters.
Working alongside the existing Touring Network team, the Project Coordinator will be responsible for overseeing this project. It is an exciting opportunity to be involved in a project which helps to ensure the sustainability of The Touring Network, encourages promoters to programme high quality performances, and helps to build audiences in the Highlands and Islands.
This is a fixed term part-time post, currently funded by Creative Scotland and Young Start for 2 years, which may be extended subject to the the successful outcomes of the project, and further funding applications.
Salary: £25,000 pro-rata (0.6)
Interviews will be held week beginning 23 Nov 2015.
