Fierce seeks next generation LGBTQIA+ creatives in the West Midlands to help lead major multi-disciplinary arts programme for Birmingham 2022 Festival
Following a consultation with queer creatives in the city, Fierce is looking to recruit an arty, enthusiastic, politically engaged and intersectional steering group of ‘next generation’ LGBTQIA+ arts leaders based in the West Midlands. This is a development opportunity: the steering group will work closely with Fierce, as we devolve power to them to lead a hugely exciting, multi-disciplinary arts programme as part of the Birmingham 2022 Festival, subject to contract approvals
This project has a duty to actively respond to the context of systemic and social oppression & homophobia across the Commonwealth and the colonial legacy at the root of it. This will require a care centred approach that uplifts those who were most marginalised by empire, to instead celebrate the rich cultures that were erased and eclipsed around the world.
We are looking to recruit five LGBTQIA+ steering group members to drive the project both conceptually and materially. We are seeking people at the start of their careers who have a desire to work in the arts. You don’t need loads of experience for this role. It’s really a chance to learn and develop skills on an exciting and large scale project.
This development opportunity is paid at a day rate of £160 for 12 days (any access requirements are covered separately to this fee).

Deadline 11.59pm, Sunday 9th January. (Please note we have extended this deadline to allow for additional time after the winter break)
