Recruitment – Community Producer

We are recruiting for a Community Producer to develop, commission and deliver new community-led creative responses exploring Black, Asian and Refugee and Migrant community experiences of COVID-19.

The project

As our National Lottery Heritage Fund supported three-year project (which sought to increase diversity in archives) comes to an end we want to ensure that the legacy and learning of Phase 1 and 2 are embedded into our practice and continue to inform sector wide change. The additional funding which NLHF have provided for Phase 3 also acknowledges that Black, Asian, Refugee and Migrant communities have been disproportionately impacted with COVID-19. Many groups that we have worked with are struggling with higher levels of bereavement and critical illnesses in their communities, as well as absorbing a higher economic impact of job loss and loss of small businesses that are at the heart of many communities. For many right now, heritage activities are not a priority. However, we believe that by continuing to maintain and invest in those relationships, through co-developing heritage engagement activities and supporting groups and individuals to participate by providing training and levelling the playing field with regard to digital skills and tools, we will enable some groups to continue and build on their heritage work.

The role

We are looking for a culturally competent and empathetic producer with a proven track record of working creatively with marginalised communities to help groups and individuals develop their creative ideas. You will be a highly competent multi-tasker and team player who has strong communication and relationship building skills with the ability to work sensitively with a diverse range of stakeholders.
