TORBAY CULTURE SEEKS CREATIVE DIRECTION SUPPORT
Torbay Culture is looking for a brilliant individual, organisation or consortium to deliver the creative direction of Torbay’s £1.2m Great Place Scheme programme and oversee new commissions of great cultural product that amplify and grow our cultural assets.
Can you help us make Torbay more attractive to residents, visitors and businesses through a Bay-wide approach to strategic, culture-led programming and product development? Develop our reputation for innovative, community-driven arts and heritage in unusual places and spaces and support our cultural venues to thrive? Could you address the gap between what potential ‘creative tourist’ visitors want and what they expect to find in Torbay? Ultimately, can you put us on the map as a great cultural centre and creative coast?
We need to get much better at celebrating and commercialising all our cultural assets, with a mass exploration of our built and natural as well as intangible heritage. We’re setting out to reconnect people with the 22 miles of coastline, UNESCO Geopark, Agatha Christie heritage and other intangible, lesser-known heritage and reanimate our spaces and places with a year-round programme and amplified activity presence.
We would expect you to collaborate with and develop local talent and venues as well as connect with national and international partners, so that our stronger cultural programme leads to a more resilient cultural sector and can become sustainable through ticket sales, grant income and fundraising.
If you think you can help us raise our cultural game, please download the full invitation to tender from our website which includes all the details on how to apply. Closing date is 10am, Monday 29th January 2018.
