HLA Artistic Director Vacancy

After working for Home Live Art for 17 years and 13 years respectively, Mimi Banks and Jane Greenfield are to step down as co-directors in summer 2018 in order to pursue their own creative projects.

The search for their replacement is now on!  Recruitment is a 2-stage process including initial Expressions of Interest (submitted October) and formal applications (submitted January 2018). The proposed starting date for the new appointment/s will be April 1st 2018 with a handover period taking place during April–June 2018.  This is an exciting time for the company with opportunities to develop new partnerships, collaborate with stellar organisations already based in the South East region and take work forward in new and adventurous ways.  At this stage we are looking for ideas and encourage applicants to be open and creative in their thinking. The Board of HLA is interested in different models of leadership and wants to encourage individuals, collectives, job shares and existing organizations to apply.

Over the last decade and a half Home Live Art and its small team of producers have developed a reputation for bringing socially engaged live art into mainstream contexts. Projects such as the Church Ale Festival, The Alternative Village Fete and a 3-year national tour with Ida Barr’s Mash Up have helped to establish the comp any’s open and accessible approach to live art programming,while maintaining a sense of risk taking and playful provocation.  While maintaining their national remit, Home Live Art recently relocated to the South East, developing programmes of work for Angel House in Brighton and the Coastal Currents Festival in Hastings. The duo have also secured NPO funding for a further 4 years enabling the company to fully establish itself and its activity in the region.  If you are new to HLA and are interested in applying, we suggest browsing the website to get familiar with our work.  About us is a good place to start, and here you can read the news post that first announced the vacancy.
