APPLY AS AN ARTS COMMUNITY CONVERSATION PARTICIPANT

Have an Impact

We are seeking up to 50 freelancers and members of project-funded organisations to be paid to take part in up to three hour long conversations help shape and form an action plan for recovery for arts & culture in Brighton & Hove. We are also seeking participants who currently work for Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisations or who have an alternative business model, whose time will be covered by their salary.


Fee for freelancers = up to £150

Length of contract = 3 x 1 hour long group meetings (online or person if possible) between 14th and 30th September 2020.

Applications close 9am on 14th August

Roles will be announced by 2nd September.

Brighton & Hove residents will be prioritised but those with a track record of working in the city and/or who live in the surrounding areas will also be considered. There are 50 paid community conversation positions in total.

The participants will take part in a range of meetings focussing on different aspects of the recovery action plan for arts & culture in Brighton & Hove.   There may be a shorter introductory meeting and a final sharing of the action plan – these are in addition to the 3 meetings.

The action plan will be in place by early October 2020 and will ensure the city is in a strong position to attract investment from public bodies and other stakeholders to aid the recovery process for arts and culture, as and when it becomes available.


There are two strands of the action plan to explore in the meetings:

  1. Brighton as a canvas. Preparing ideas for creative responses to re-imagining the city’s outdoor offer

  2. Inclusive growth for the cultural and events sector

Exploring shared resources (including virtual and physical infrastructure) skills development and the principles of inclusive growth.

There will be a series of working groups under each strand to allow for specialism to be utilised e.g. Children and Young People

Essential qualities and skills

The right people for this job will have:

  • ideas, dreams, relevant experience and practical suggestions for how the arts and cultural sector can work better in the future in Brighton & Hove

  • a willingness to lead change and take forward ideas within their organisations and communities

  • well networked within their community (you can define that community)

  • a strong belief in the power of collaboration

  • excellent communication skills

  • a belief in the relevance and importance of arts & culture as a driver for positive change in Brighton & Hove

  • a realistic understanding that not all ideas will end up in a strategic action plan, not all ideas  need a strategic action plan to become reality

  • a generosity to share skills and expertise with others

  • a strong sense of care for themselves and others
