Arts Manager, Philippines (PHI-1774)

 

ABOUT THE DEPARTMENT/TEAM

Our Arts programme in the Philippines focuses on developing cultural and creative industries as a priority sector of the country. We do this through engaging art projects, policy dialogue, international exchange and professional development. We work with artists, creative hubs, cultural leaders, and policymakers within the Philippines, ASEAN region and the UK to create more prosperous, creative and inclusive cities. Programmes include Creative Hubs for Good, supporting creative hubs to become more sustainable and impact-led, and Crafting Futures, offering designers and artisans access to knowledge and expertise, new markets and audiences.

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE DOING AND WHY

As the Arts Manager, you will plan and deliver our Arts and Creative Industries programmes, ensuring all activities meet their objectives, are delivered at high quality, on time and within budget, and in line with corporate strategies and objectives.

 

Supporting the Head of Arts and Creative Industries on key strategic strands, you will be in-charge of maintaining existing and building new partnerships with key stakeholders in the arts and creative sectors in the Philippines.  You will be supported by and work closely with several teams across the organisation; particularly the local finance team (Financial Planning and Analysis, FPA, and Financial Controller, FC), local procurement team, regional arts team and art form advisers based in London.

 

WHAT IS INTERESTING ABOUT IT

You can take pride in the fact that you will have the opportunity to work with a range of global and local partners on the design and delivery of art programmes which influence policy on key agendas and bring long term impact to beneficiaries. You will also take part in making changes in the lives of hundreds of artists, artisans and creative entrepreneurs by contributing to their skills and professional development.

 

WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

It is essential that you have first bachelor's degree in an arts management or creative related field along with at least three years professional working experience in an arts or creative related field.
