London Programme Producer

Streetwise Opera is hiring a London Programme Producer who will be responsible for producing multidisciplinary creative arts projects and performances, working to reduce barriers to creative engagement, building new relationships with arts organisations and homeless partners, and representing our company regionally and nationally.

We are looking for someone with demonstrable experience producing participatory creative arts projects and live performances, and creative flair and ability to develop strong relationships with artists.

Streetwise Opera is an opera company that enables people who’ve experienced homelessness to find inspiration and empowerment while they rebuild their lives and identities. We support participants to develop as creative people and, as we amplify their voices, change how society views homelessness.

We engage world-class artists, both established and emerging, to co-create bold new work and reimagine traditional repertoire. We create opera that is for everyone and, by bringing together diverse voices, change how society views opera.
