Deadline: Friday 7 February 2020

Emergency Exit Arts (EEA) is one of Britain’s pioneering outdoor arts companies, creating magical experiences in the places where you live, learn, work and play. It reinvigorates communities, gives people a voice and challenges the ordinary.

You are likely to have a clear artistic vision, and know how to get the best out of a creative team. You will be inspired by both creating ambitious art in public spaces, as well as the impact it can have on participants and audiences. The post is offered part-time as you might have other commitments on your time. Alternatively, if you feel able to be full-time with EEA , it can be considered.

As Artistic Director you will provide inspirational leadership, a bold and relevant artistic vision, strategic direction, a safe and inclusive environment for staff, partners, participants and audiences. Together you will make EEA's shared, bold ideas about diversifying the sector a reality and carefully manage the long-term financial stability and growth of EEA. It actively welcomes and encourages applications from individuals who reflect the rich diversity of the city, yet are currently underrepresented in the arts sector. EEA invites you to take a leap with and challenge us!

Your job is to have fantastic, creative ideas and know how to attain them. You’ll set the artistic direction, vision and positioning of the company and optimise the company’s existing and future creative assets.
