EMERALD ANT CIC – FREELANCE MARKETING POSITION FOR THE IGUANODON RESTAURANT
Having obtained Arts Council funding, Emerald Ant is now looking for an experienced arts marketing person to promote and obtain festival bookings for an exciting new outdoor performance.
'The Iguanodon Restaurant' is the second of Emerald Ant’s outdoor productions based on dinosaurs, and follows the success of Horace the Travelling Pliosaur Cinema. Originally created for communities and visitors to the Jurassic Coast, Horace has now toured the UK for over 4 years. ‘Iggy’ therefore, will develop relationships already built through Horace, in particular with science and family festivals / events. The project is an artistic collaboration between makers Emerald Ant and Shanty Theatre Company, and is well supported by the earth science community as well as arts funders.
The project will continue to progress relationships Emerald Ant already has with science festivals (in particular fossil festivals and geology events). Several bookings for 2016 and 2017 are pencilled in. The Emerald Ant Project Leader and board will oversee this, and promote ‘Iggy’ to schools and an intensive Schools Programme is planned for 2016 and 2017. The marketing person is required, therefore, to build relationships and get bookings at more mainstream events around the country; history festivals, children’s events, music and heritage events. Also, to engage children and dino-enthusiasts through building social media for ‘Iggy’ and keeping a wordpress blog atwww.emeraldant.com. We are looking for someone in the Southwest, Dorset / S Somerset / E Devon preferably, who would be able to visit the workshop to capture the creation of Iggy, and then spread this work out from now until the autumn. Particularly busy times will be March, April and the Summer. For full details of the post please email Project Leader Sarah Butterworth firstname.lastname@example.org
There is a £2700 fee for this work to include expenses. A budget of £1850 is available for the creation of a promotional video and leaflets.
Closes Sunday 31 January 2016
