Creative Practice Producer Call Out

field:arts Partner Organisation, Live Collision, are recruiting a Creative Practice Producer for 2022. This is a part time, paid position.

Established in 2009, Live Collision is regarded as the leading curatorial model of Live Art in Ireland, both as an annual festival and year-round independent creative producing organisation; working with artists of exceptional calibre across and between art form.

Live Collision presents work never before shown in Ireland, with multiple partners, to realise work of varying scale across sites, locations and contexts beyond the conventional model.  The work of the festival sets a series of provocations, asking us the viewer to come into direct relationship with the complexity of our contemporary state; excavating with urgency topics such as class, race, capitalism, political rhetoric, migration, feminism, identity, gender, sexuality, access, equality and displacement. 

If you would like any of this information in a different format please contact us by email on info@fieldarts.ie

If you have access requirements for the application process, please email us on info@fieldarts.ie and we will be happy to discuss how we can support you through the process by phone or email.

Overview

Live Collision will engage a Creative Practice Producer outside of the festival timeframe with a particular focus on the intersection between the festival’s Live Art programme alongside existing and new partnerships. 

The starting point for engagement and research will begin with an initial provocation – how can we offset structural austerity and use co-creation to assist in stronger equality, diversity and access to decolonise cultural space for artists and audiences alike.

The CPP will be asked to revisit the festival’s key strands and initiatives both past and present (ie. Trans Live Art Salon, NU ROOTS & WHY LIVE ART, WHY NOW?) to mobilise future initiatives and activities across the festival programme.

The role of the Creative Practice Producer will have a particular focus on the intersectionality across the festival programme, public engagement & community development.

Further information

Live Collision generates a space for experimentation, pushes boundaries and steps beyond accepted conventions. The festival celebrates the integral role of audiences creating multiple invitations with varying proximities across live performance, salons, discursive events, experiential happenings and parties. Over 30%+ of the programme is collaborative/socially engaged projects across local contexts of place & groups of interest. 100% of the festival programme (artists & artworks alike) excavate with urgency topics such as class, race, capitalism, political rhetoric, migration, mental health, feminism, identity, gender, sexuality, access, equality and displacement.

Live Collision is committed to generating new leadership roles and opportunities across the arts sector in Ireland and building direct support for future Black, Asian and ethnically diverse cultural leaders.
