Lincolnshire One Venues (LOV) is a network of eight visual and performing arts centres, established to create a more coherent arts offer across a large and predominately rural county. 

A successful funding bid to the National Foundation for Youth Music means we are seeking a Project Coordinator to join the LOV team to deliver and coordinate EVOLVE, our music programme for schools.

The Project Coordinator will support the development of a team of Emerging Music Leaders across the life of the programme and will work closely with local schools and venues, so must be good at building relationships with a range of stakeholders. The EVOLVE program has been running for over three years to date, and the next two years offer significant scope for development.

The selected applicant will have enthusiasm, experience and commitment to work with a wide variety of young people, artists and venues, with a good working knowledge of up to date music making practices. Co-creation and participant-led creativity is central to our model of working and so we are particularly interested to hear from people with experience in developing and leading on projects created with, by and for young people. You will understand the delicate balance needed to support youth-led activity and will have the drive to mentor and support emerging artists.

You will coordinate and deliver LOV’s EVOLVE Music programme for schools. EVOLVE focuses on three areas of development:

  • Providing opportunities for Primary and Secondary students (including SEND settings) to produce their own Live Music Events
  • Building links between schools and venues across the county
  • Supporting early career creatives to deliver this work and building other opportunities to enhance their experience and employability

This is a full-time post, initially for two years but with the possibility of extension depending on future funding. Due to the rural and widespread nature of the work to be undertaken, driving and access to a vehicle are essential, with travel costs refunded. 

In return for the skills and experience that you bring to the post you’ll be central to an exciting project, providing ground-breaking opportunities for young people to flex their creative muscles. We provide our staff with a comprehensive benefit package which includes 30 days of annual leave (with additional University closure days and bank holidays), a generous pension scheme, local and national discounts, green travel initiatives, and a variety of development opportunities.

Please note that this post requires an Enhanced DBS check.
