East Africa Arts is the British Council’s framework for working between Kenya, Uganda, Sudan, South Sudan, Tanzania, Rwanda, Ethiopia and the UK. Working predominantly with 18 – 35-year olds, the programme: connects new audiences to new art; shares skills of creatives; and ignites partnerships between the creative sectors of the UK and the East African region.
The Arts Manager will support the Head of Arts Kenya and East Africa, and the wider British Council team, to deliver an engaging Ethiopian arts programme that works within British Council’s East Africa Arts programme and builds knowledge and understanding between the UK and Ethiopia
This role is expected to make a major contribution to the successful delivery of the British Council’s East Africa Arts programme, as well as clearly deliver and communicate the impact of East Africa Arts in Ethiopia and to the British council Ethiopia. It will focus strategy and time predominantly in Ethiopia but will have some key responsibilities across the East Africa cluster based on their specific skills and experience.
East Africa Arts consists of three programmes:
• new Art new Audiences (nAnA):
an annual Open Call across East Africa and the UK for cultural partners to create new art to showcase to new audiences in the UK and East Africa
• Creative Hustles:
a series of skills and networking events across East Africa, which share creative knowledge between 18-35-year olds;
• in Motion:
travel grants supporting the movement of creatives and the building of partnerships across East Africa.
