*UPDATE: we have corrected errors in the job pack that incorrectly stated eligibility criteria. This role is for someone who has been working for 2-5 years*

Fierce are excited to offer this rare opportunity for a paid traineeship in Performing Arts for an aspiring programmer/curator. This job is designed for someone early in their career (we suggest 2-5 years, but this doesn’t need to have been in the arts), and for someone for whom economic disadvantage has been a barrier to developing a career in the arts. It is offered as part of the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursary Programme and will last a minimum of 12 months.

It’s an exciting time to join Fierce as we grow the organisation to prepare for our 25th Anniversary Fierce Festival as well as delivering a new showcase of performance created in England that will happen at the Edinburgh Festivals in August 2021. Fierce is celebrated internationally as a leading presenter of live art

The deadline is 10am on Monday 1st March, interviews will be held on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th March.
