Recruiting a Producer for our new Girls Programme
Posted: 21st August 2020
Pie Factory Music is seeking a creative and organised Producer to facilitate the Girls Programme strand of our Emerging Artists Programme, funded by Youth Music.
During our pilot of the Thanet Emerging Artists Programme in 2018-19, we noticed that girls were significantly underrepresented in those who applied to be Young Producers, and the events were attended by a vast majority of boys. As we know that women are drastically underrepresented in the music industry (as BBC Radio One’s DJ Annie Mac’s broadcast [March 2016] on the subject of women in the music industry points out, women make up less than 15% of writers registered at PRS and less than 15% of performers booked to play UK festivals are women), we felt we needed to provide a space for girls specifically to develop their musicianship as part of the next phase of the programme. This is why we have developed a Girls Programme that runs alongside our main Emerging Artists Programme (formerly the Young Producers programme). The Girls Programme is open to up to 15 young people who identify as female or genderqueer aged 13-18.
The appointed person would be expected to start mid-September 2020, working with one cohort of participants, and finishing in mid-September 2021.
