Marketing and Audience Development Manager Job Description

We are recruiting for two roles – Creative Agent and Commissioned Artist – to create a highly visible arts project for Newmarket which celebrates people’s interest in sports and outdoor leisure activities – kite design and kite flying – and the new opportunities that the National Heritage Centre for Horseracing and Sporting Art will bring.

Key objectives of Celebrate Newmarket project are to:

  • Increase local interest in participating the arts as makers and as visitors to galleries and museums
  • Build relationships with local organisations, developing a sense of local ownership of the National Heritage Centre and creating a dialogue with Market Place about other arts initiatives in the town
  • Develop the creative skills of participants and their connection between their everyday lives and the arts, through working with a professional artist
  • Develop the skills of the artist through the opportunity to work with expert kite makers/flyers

Creative Agent will build the relationships and infrastructure necessary to set-up the project, including picking up relationships already established by other local partners (i.e. the museum, the Forest Heath Creative Forums Facilitator, the local library etc), scheduling workshops and visits, supporting sessions and the artist as required, and running the final celebration event.

Commissioned Artist will design and deliver the programme, in collaboration with a kite-maker / flyer, from the introductory skills-based workshops to visits to the museum, follow-up workshops designing and making the kites, and the open-sessions, and will be part of the final celebration event.
