We are looking for an experienced arts producer to take the leading role in the production and delivery of AV Festival 10, which takes place from 5 – 14 March 2010 in Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
AV Festival is an international festival of electronic arts, featuring visual art, music and moving image. This is a fixed-term contract from approximately early June 2009 to the end of March 2010. The indicative fee is £23,000 – £28,000 pro rata (dependent on experience). You will work closely with the Director of AV Festival on the development of the programme and lead on the delivery of festival exhibitions, performances, publicly-sited installations and other special events across Newcastle, Gateshead, Sunderland and Middlesbrough.
There have been three successful editions of the festival to date, in 2003, 2006 and 2008. AV Festival has developed into a regular biennial event of international standing and has a strong network of collaborators across the North East of England and around the world. AVANE became a regularly funded organisation (RFO) of Arts Council England in 2008-09 in recognition of its artistic excellence, international profile and regional engagement. With a new Director and Manager in post, the development of a three year business plan, and planning currently underway for AV Festival 10, this is an ideal moment for a creative and dynamic individual to take a leading role in delivering the programme for AV Festival 10.
Closing date: 10am, Monday 18 May – late applications will not be accepted
Interviews will be held in Newcastle on Tuesday 26 May
