Manchester Programme Producer, Streetwise Opera

If you believe that the arts can positively transform individuals and communities; you have experience producing participatory projects and live performances, and you are based in or around Manchester, this could be the career opportunity you’ve been waiting for. 

We are looking for a self-starter with excellent networks within local and regional artistic communities, to become our Manchester Programme Producer. As such, you will produce multidisciplinary creative arts projects and performances, work to reduce barriers to creative engagement, and build new relationships with arts organisations and homeless partners. 

You will be joining Streetwise Opera, an award-winning performing arts charity that, since 2002, has inspired and empowered people affected by homelessness through singing and creativity. We are an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation, we were recognised as one of the Big Issue’s Top 100 Changemakers 2020, and we’ve been described by The New York Times as “combining social purpose with serious artistic endeavour”. 

You will collaborate with world-class artists to create critically acclaimed and exciting new operas that challenge and change the perception of homelessness, and your work will have a tangible social impact, as participants in our workshops and performances rebuild their self-esteem, boost their wellbeing and overcome social isolation. 

As our representative in Manchester, you will manage support workers and volunteers, as well as liaise with Streetwise Opera staff in other regions. This varied and rewarding role will be at the heart of Streetwise Opera’s work, and you will get to witness the tangible impact of your contribution to a charity that inspires and empowers people affected by homelessness.
