Creative Instigators - Bradford - Freelance P/T

Bradford Producing Hub (BPH) is seeking to appoint two Creative Instigators to help drive forward the BPH vision, create strong connections with the sector and help to develop new ways of working. 

Who are we looking for? We believe the Creative Instigator roles will be suited to artists living or working in Bradford from any live performance discipline, with a commitment to socially engaged and collaborative practice and a tendency for disrupting the status quo. The roles will initially be offered on a freelance 6-month pilot contract, for 2 days per week.


What is the fee?


£150 per day to include travel to/from Bradford city centre (other travel and expenses will be paid in agreement with the Commissioning Producer and consortium).


This is a freelance engagement and Creative Instigators will be responsible for payment of their own tax and national insurance payments.
