Diverse Actions seeks Project Manager
Diverse Actions is a Live Art UK initiative which champions culturally diverse ambition, excellence and talent in Live Art. Diverse Actions builds on Live Art’s vital role as a practice of artistic innovation and a space to express complex ideas of cultural identity.
Diverse Actions has four strands of activity:
• Professional development: to attract, encourage and support a new generation of performance makers.
• New work - development, presentation and touring: to enhance and deepen existing development and presentation opportunities for performance makers.
• Leadership: to strengthen the national network for the development and presentation of Live Art and empower new leaders across the theatre sector.
• Legacy: to stimulate and disseminate discourse and dialogue about cultural diversity and performance.
Over three years, commencing in April 2017, LAUK member organisations will support 14 bursaries, 9 workshops, 15 residencies, 15 commissions, 3 international masterclasses, 15 tours, a publication and a symposium.
The legacy of Diverse Actions will be held by the practitioners who participate and benefit from the initiative – those new to Live Art and those who extend their practice
Live Art UK is now seeking a project manager for Diverse Actions:
The Diverse Actions Project Manager will play a key role in shaping the initiative, supporting the members of LAUK as they deliver artists’ projects, and will act as an enabler of networks and information sharing. This is a fantastic opportunity to play a central role in the development of the Live Art sector. We’re looking for a project manager with outstanding knowledge of culturally diverse artistic practice and networks, and an excellent understanding of Live Art.
