Horizon Programme Director, Battersea Arts Centre


We are looking for a highly organised project manager, with excellent team leadership, stakeholder management and communication skills, to lead on all aspects of delivery for Horizon - England’s performing arts showcase at Edinburgh Festivals in 2022 & 2023.

The ACE funded showcase 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.

In delivering the showcase, the Horizon Programme Director will be accountable to the Horizon consortium. 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 full time basis (35hrs p/w), but we will consider flexible arrangements with a minimum equivalent of 28 hours (4 days) per week.

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