Neon Dance seek Cultural Connectors (age 18-24) in three UK locations (Liverpool, Didcot and Bristol) to work alongside the company and act as a bridge between their local community and Neon’s latest performance work ‘Puzzle Creature’. They’re searching for creative self-starters to help them reach new audiences.
Role: This role is task based, not hour-based. They work flexibly and remotely, operating on a trust basis. As long as tasks are complete, you define when and how they get done.
Deadline: 12 noon, 20 August
Interviews: 25 August
You’ll find ways to record and describe the production on your own terms, exploring ways to engage your community with the work and Neon Dance. They want you to tell people about it (locally, physically & digitally), excite them and engage them in a conversation about it.
You will have an important role in the physical and local digital campaign to reach (face to face) people in your community who may not have engaged with the arts before. You will be responsible for a ticket budget of £150 to ensure those in your communities who are unable to purchase a ticket (for whatever reason) are still be able to attend the performance.
Their expectations are that the role will attract 30 new people to a performance; 15 audience members new to the venue/festival who will pay for their own tickets after you have connected with them and 15 audience members who use the allocated ticket budget of £150 that you have at your discretion.
Neon Dance expect you to attend the performance and create your own response to the work (GIF, poem, film, blog, song, sculpture, review, art work etc.) which will be shared online afterwards.
