Arts Management Placement Programme – Yorkshire region
Want to work in arts management but not sure how to start out?
Are you a disabled person or do you come from a culturally diverse background?
Are you based in (or close to) Yorkshire?
If you can answer yes to the questions above, there is a new placement programme that might be just what you are looking for to kick start your career in the dance, literature or music sector.
We have now recruited for five paid and supported work placements at Ilkley Literature Festival, Yorkshire Dance, Opera North, Peepal Tree Press or Balbir Singh Dance Company.
Watch this space for information on how the programme develops.
There are disproportionately fewer disabled people and those from culturally diverse communities working in management roles within the arts sector. This is particularly the case in the fields of literature, dance and music within Yorkshire. Arts Council England, Yorkshire is funding these targeted placements to help readdress this imbalance.
These placements were targeted at disabled people and people from culturally diverse backgrounds. We welcome all disabled people and people with long term health conditions - whether your impairment is a fundamental part of you, or simply a part of your life. This includes people living with or recovering from major illnesses and those with mental health issues as well as those with physical, sensory or hidden impairments. We equally welcomed all those from all black and minority ethnic backgrounds.
The successful placements are as follows:
Balbir Singh Dance Company
Prabhaavathi Thangavel Administration Manager
Ilkley Literature Festival
Milan Lad Events Manager
Anish Miyanga New Media
Peepal Tree Press
Adam Lowe tbc
Nattylyn Jeffers Community Engagement Officer
The Arts Management Placement Programme is being delivered by Mark Wright, People Create and Jo Verrent, ADA inc on behalf of Arts Council England, Yorkshire – see contact details below.
All the placements have now been filled and the placements start in May/June 2010 dependant on the hosts and placements availability.
