Creative Producer Role

The specific tasks of the Creative Producer may vary dependant on particular areas of expertise, we have set out below some of the key tasks:

  • Working closely with the Enchanted Parks Writer to help the event realise the theatrical narrative that the artworks will form part of;
  • Using knowledge of practising artists to solicit appropriate proposals.
  • Selecting work using a curatorial overview rather than just based on the merits of the individual piece;
  • Working with artists to adapt their individual ideas so that the whole is more coherent.
  • Supporting the development of the assistant producer (TBA), to enable them to build their skills to become the next generation of outdoor Creative producers.
  • Taking a curatorial approach to the planning of the route and the placing of the artworks with the audience experience at the forefront.
  • Advising on possible collaborators and brokering relationships between commissioned artists and also other external partners.
  • Working closely and supportively with commissioned artists and the Production Manager to ensure the best chance of delivering a high-quality piece.
  • Working with artists on their budget before it is finalised; being present at site visits, talking through options / solutions for technical delivery.
