Everyman & Playhouse seek new creative director
Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse has launched a search for a new creative director who will help shape its future artistic vision.
The successful candidate will replace artistic director Gemma Bodinetz who left at the end of December after 17 years at the venues.
Her replacement’s role will include guiding the programme for both theatres, telling important and relevant stories for a Liverpool audience and nurturing creative talent. Digital content will also be a key part of the job, along with overseeing the long-term financial resilience of the artistic work.
They will also be expected to be an ‘artistic advocate’ for the theatres on a local, national and international level.
Mark Da Vanzo, chief executive of the Liverpool and Merseyside Theatres Trust which runs the Everyman and Playhouse, said: “With the appointment of a Creative Director, we reach an exciting point in the history of our two theatres. We hope to receive interest from a wide array of applicants, who are prepared to work collaboratively and bring their creative flair and vision to the people of Liverpool.”
Trust chairman Andrea Nixon added: “This is an excellent opportunity to introduce a fresh perspective, ensuring the organisation is relevant and collaborating effectively with the communities it serves.”
The closing date for applications is February 8.
