Horizon International Relations Manager, Battersea Arts Centre


HORIZON (England’s performing arts showcase at Edinburgh Festivals 2022 & 2023) is looking for an experienced administrator, with excellent organisation and communication skills, to ensure engagement of international and national delegates for the showcase. You will manage all aspects of delegate engagement, including scheduling, travel, bookings, attendance at wraparound events, and brokering artist conversations. Managing a process for distribution of funds to support international development and touring following the showcase will also be a key aspect of this role.

Horizon is led by a consortium of six nationally significant venues and festivals: Battersea Arts Centre (BAC); Dance4; Fierce; GIFT; MAYK; and Transform. The 2021 pilot showcase included streamed live theatre, dance and live art performances, digital works and other events for a global audience, with international delegates supported to engage virtually with the performances. For 2022 & 2023, the showcase will primarily involve live performance, in Edinburgh, but digital wraparound activities will also form part of the work. Artist Residencies and bursaries are also a feature of the plans.

The role will be contracted by BAC, but you have the option of working remotely, from anywhere in the UK. Regular travel to consortium organisations across the UK will be required, as well as on site work in Edinburgh during the festivals. The role is offered on a part time basis (21hrs p/w) with the option to increase to 35hrs p/w, July-Sept 2022 & 2023 (during the festivals).

Applications close 10am, Monday 31 January 2022. For more information, and to apply, please visit https://bac.org.uk/our-story/work-with-us/
