Leicester, The Spark Arts for Children - Creative Producer
Friday 23 February 2018
The Spark Arts for Children (Leicester) is looking for a Creative Producer to work alongside the Spark Director to develop and deliver the Vital Spark programme of artist development, and find and create more diverse work for children for the Spark Festival and the Children’s arts sector more widely.
The Spark has been awarded additional funds from Arts Council England in the next round of NPO to develop and deliver Vital Spark. The aim of Vital Spark is to shape, influence and transform the landscape of Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA) developing new and diverse product for CYP, enabling that work to thrive nationally and journey internationally. Through Vital Spark we will meet the needs of artists, and audiences, through a year round development and commissioning programme, with a view to address the national gap of diverse work for CYP. The ambition is to use the Spark Festival as a platform to create opportunities for diverse artists to share, show and rigorously discuss practice and celebrate new work that is equal to that seen around the world.
