Contract: Fixed-term until March 2022
Hours: 14.8 hours per week (equivalent to 2 days per week)
Salary: £19,537 pro rata
Application Deadline: Sunday 12 December 2021, 23:59 BST
We are seeking someone with knowledge of Holi festival and an enthusiasm for sharing Holi traditions and practices with the wider public, to join our event planning team.
The Community Event Assistant - Holi will co-design and co-deliver a Holi event in March 2022, working closely with GemArts and BALTIC colleagues, and contributing artists and musicians. They will be based at BALTIC and assisting with internal event organisation and logistics, while also spending time connecting and building awareness with different community groups in their settings.
This event is part of GemArts core South Asian celebration programme, hosted at BALTIC for 2022. It connects with BALTIC’s Neighbourly programme which seeks to support people with refugee and asylum-seeking experience and takes inspiration from the exhibition of Sutapa Biswas in BALTIC's BxNU Level 3 gallery. It aims to bring people together and create opportunities for people of different faiths and none to connect over food, music, making and conversation.
The successful candidate may have some experience in organising events (whether that be for their family, community and/or in a professional setting) but most importantly they will have an enthusiasm for bringing people and communities together and creating welcoming spaces for celebration and intercultural exchange. We particularly encourage and support applications from South Asian communities, as well as people with refugee and migration experience.
BALTIC is working towards achieving diversity and welcomes applications from all members of the community. View Equal Opportunities Statement here.
Interviews will be held on Thursday 16 December 2021.
