SICK! Festival

What can you receive?
£30,000 pro rata


2 May 2023

It’s a very exciting time to join SICK! – In the current and post Covid environment we believe that the themes that we address – such as physical and mental health, disability, gender, death, inequality, politics, and protest – are ever more important and relevant.

Whilst our partners and funders are investing in our long-term vision because they understand both our current and potential impact locally, nationally, and globally. We have embarked on a 10-year strategic community engagement programme in the Moston, Harpurhey, and Charlestown neighbourhoods of North Manchester, including rolling out a major programme of arts and mental health work.

We recently delivered our 2022 Festival and as part of this we have developed newly commissioned art works with partners in South Africa, Finland, Netherlands, and Switzerland.

We’re looking for a dynamic and creative individual to join us, to work closely as part of our fantastic team here at SICK! and help us achieve our potential and grow our impact and reach.

We’re looking for someone who will brings their unique energy to this, along with their experience of communication strategy, social media, copywriting, and creative thinking, and is also passionate about, and interested in, the areas in which SICK! operates – arts, health, diversity, community development and international work.

While we are proud of our diversity achievements in our creative programmes, we want to further diversify our workforce to be representative of all sections of society. We actively welcome candidates who are currently underrepresented in the arts including people who face discrimination as a result of racism, those who self-identify as LGBTQIA+, those from lower socio-economic backgrounds and those who self-identify as disabled.

We know that everyone has different commitments in their work/home lives and we are open to requests for varied working hours or work patterns. These will be considered taking into account the impact on the organisation and work colleagues.
