The Bristol Hippodrome opened its doors in 1912 and they’ve been open ever since welcoming all to see the best in live entertainment that Bristol has to offer. A favourite with touring producers, the Hippodrome has shows running throughout the calendar year after year and is known as Bristol’s West End theatre.
The Creative Learning Producer will lead The Bristol Hippodrome in offering dynamic and stimulating initiatives across a range of different areas, delivering targeted projects; sitting in line with ATG’s, sponsors and partners objectives, the needs of the community, and building exciting and multi-layered ventures. Creative Learning & Community Partnerships is a dynamic department which delivers a high quality programme of award winning cultural education which is locally driven, with national significance!
The team are embarking on a new relaunch, succeeding a period of rest due to the closure of venues following the impact of the pandemic.
the creative learning producer will be a passionate, multi-faceted and talented individual, an innovative leader who will consciously ensure that the local programme responds to the needs and opportunities of their area with ingenuity, finesse and integrity, whilst achieving a strategic local impact.
Bristol is a creative and diverse city with over 92 languages being spoken and a huge potential for meaningful engagement. In reactivating our Creative Learning and Audience Development initiatives, we are ambitious and genuine in our commitment to nurturing the next generation of audiences and workforce. The aim of the rejuvenated Creative Learning programme is to provide meaningful and targeted engagement to widen access to people from across the locality, who for various reasons would not be able to access the cultural offerings. To achieve this broad remit, we are seeking an experienced cultural educationalist.
The programme will include working with a wide-ranging cross section of communities including learners & audience members across a diverse range of participant groups and communities – including but not limited to schools, learners with additional needs, children & young people, families, adults & older people.
The successful candidate will harness their intrinsic understanding of the needs, challenges and opportunities of the local community including the schools’ landscape and will deliver exemplar and specialist work, while applying their understanding of national education policy and key agenda. They will communicate effectively on updates and progress by interfacing with representatives from Sponsors, Producers & key ATG colleagues. They will have an entrepreneurial spirit and embed legacy and sustainability into the management of the programme, to enable growth and widen our impact long term across Bristol and surrounding areas.
The successful candidate will work with Bristol’s Sales and Development team to seek out commercial partners and explore opportunities to develop relationships with key companies, both national and local, supporting their Education and Development aims to drive new business.
Creative Learning & Community Partnerships in Bristol is part of a UK wide network of ATG venues with Creative Learning teams, working collaboratively alongside passionate colleagues in other areas to drive our nationwide impact.
