2-year part-time post from January 2020 (Edinburgh)
Love Music inspires and empowers people to be curious, creative and adventurous with music, regardless of their skill base or background, raising aspirations and changing lives. Our vision is for our communities to have no-barrier access to the highest quality musical encounters that leave them inspired to engage in their own creative journeys and open to new ideas and experiences.
We create and produce a portfolio of adventurous participatory projects and new music through which young people and communities can come together with musicians in a professional setting and participate in inspirational music making. This, together with a drive to foster and support musical curiosity, and to provide adventurous high-quality music making, underpins all of our work.
Our ethos is based on principles of inclusion, acceptance and a conscious exploration and celebration of musical and cultural diversity. We are acutely aware of the benefits of music-making to both mental and physical health, and see evidence of our participants’ increased levels of confidence and personal resilience.
We are a small and dedicated team, and have created this post to support the Managing Director in the production and marketing of all of our projects. This post will enable the organisation to deepen its partnerships within Edinburgh and to support the development and touring of its projects further afield. It will provide opportunities for the post-holder to develop their hands-on events, planning and production experience, as well as to help the organisation to best present its work.
