The Head of Programme will lead the programming and communications team on the projects that Bricks programmes directly, including Public Art and St Anne’s House, while impacts we deliver through space hire are delivered via our operations Team.

Building on work done to date, you will agree on a creative direction for these programmes in partnership with the CEO, team and board, then lead on its delivery, finding a balance between projects that have a longer lead in along with more responsive programming.

You will form a senior management team with the CEO and Head of Operations & Business, supporting the delivery and monitoring of Bricks’ strategic aims and future planning.

We have delivered a strong community-responsive programme over the last three years, and now want to build on our contemporary art remit, taking on larger more ambitious projects, giving artists space to create, working with communities in more long-form ways, building on our cross sector collaborative working and supporting the creation of new creative spaces in the West of England.
