Paid Festival Intern sought for Lewisham Live

Part Time Fixed Term: 25 days between January - May 201. Salary: £9.75 per hour. Deadline for applications: Noon, Friday 1st December 2017.

Lewisham Live is a festival of music and dance from the children and young people of Lewisham, which is brought together by a group of local partner organisations each year in March.

From its roots in one-off arts performances, the festival has grown year on year to become one of the most important events on the Lewisham youth calendar, with over 2000 young people annually performing to an audience of close to 4000.

We are looking for an enthusiastic intern for our 2018 festival to bring new ideas and great energy to the festival team. Working closely with the festival coordinator and Lewisham Education Arts Network (LEAN) team, the intern will support the festival with:

  • Office Administration and Licensing
  • Social Media and marketing
  • Evaluation and monitoring
  • Onsite event support

Lewisham Live prides itself on creating unique and high-quality projects and events for young creatives in the area, and the festival intern will help to advise, influence and develop the festival from a new perspective.

This opportunity is a great first step for a young person with an interest in dance/music who is looking to develop a career in festival and arts project management. The role also provides a chance to attend festival and training events and to work alongside representatives from some of London’s most prestigious arts organisations.


Deadline for applications: Noon, Friday 1st December 2017

Interviews will be held on Tuesday 12th December 2017. Ideally you will start week commencing 23rd January 2018.
