Fierce Festival 2019 / Birmingham, UK / 15 – 20 October

CLP Peach Placement at Fierce

In the wake of a very busy week at Fierce we are pleased to announce alongside the Cultural Leadership Programme a CLP Peach Placement with us that will span June to December 2010:

Joint Artistic Directors, Harun Morrison and Laura McDermott see this year as an exciting opportunity for Fierce to investigate what internationalism means to a festival so are looking for an Associate Creative Producer (International Projects):

“we are seeking to explore the challenges of internationalism in its broadest sense. How can international collaborations evolve in light of online technologies? How might an artist from abroad relate to a particular diasporic community? How can internationalism be reconciled with an environmentally sensitive travel policy? What is the best way to fund international projects? How can we engage more with arts communities of South America, Africa, India, China, the Middle East and Eastern Europe? How can we develop and disseminate a model of internationalism for a regional city?”

The placement will be Creative Producer for three specific International projects (potentially EXYZT/ Jeanne Van Heeswijk / South African Artists Platform: including James Webb) supported by Fierce’s artistic directors. We’re excited by the prospect of a mid-career individual with at least five years experience to be joining our team at this pivotal point in Fierce’s evolution.

Alongside Fierce there are a range of opportunities available with the following organisations: DanceEast, Ipswich; Fuel, London; Manchester City Council; National Portrait Gallery, London; and Tate , London.

The deadline to apply for our Peach Placement is 12noon on Monday 10 May 2010. Interviews will take place on Friday 4 June 2010.
