The Head of Producing is a key role within a developing Producing Team based at The Old Courts in Wigan. Working closely with the Director of Producing, the Head of Producing will take a lead role in local and national projects, connecting incredible artists with producers and communities across the country.
Central to this work is leadership of the flagship Collaborative Touring Network, which supports artists to develop and tour world-view-changing live performance with communities nationally. Alongside leading large-scale projects such as this, the Head of Producing will also support the development of producers and projects locally, as The Old Courts seeks to support a new generation of artistic and producing talent in our region.
As well as leading national projects like The Collaborative Touring Network, the Head of Producing will collaborate with other members of the producing team on locally based projects intended for audiences in Wigan borough, which have live performance/festival activity at their heart. This could range from street festivals to borough-wide arts festivals, and will be part of a growing rostra of activity developed by the Old Courts and its partners in the coming months.
All applications must be submitted by Monday 16 May, 9am. Successful shortlisted applicants will be invited to attend an interview in the week commencing 30 May (30 May, 31 May or 1 June). We can provide a BSL interpreter if required.
