Following Culture Recovery funding, SLiDE is looking for an experienced Freelance Fundraiser to join our small dynamic team as we enter an exciting new period of development. The successful candidate will work with the Artistic Director and Senior Producer to achieve our fundraising targets for 2021/2022.
This is a flexible, fixed term contract with a fee of £5000, dates and times to be discussed and agreed with the team. There is the possibility of extension, subject to the success of future funding applications.
SLiDE is a community of dancers, musicians and creatives who mainly live in Croydon, London and the Southeast. Co-founded by Gemma Coldicott and Anita Wadsworth, SLiDE is built on over eight years of collaboration and partnership with local residents, education settings and organisations.
We strive to remove barriers to participation in dance faced by learning disabled people, addressing power imbalances. With a wider aim to bring disabled and non-disabled people together to dance. Through classes, performance projects and social events we engage with the wider community, uniting diverse groups.
Under the Artistic Direction of Gemma Coldicott, SLiDE have expanded its profile and reputation, attracting additional funding for our programme of arts projects and performances. We are looking to secure future funding to pursue our ambitions into 2021/2022.
We are looking for someone with demonstrable experience in successfully researching, writing and achieving funding from various sources, including the Arts Council, Trusts and Foundations, The National Lottery and other public funding bodies. We’d like to work with someone with knowledge of participatory & community arts, and in particular dance. They will recognise and champion SLiDE’s values, and have an enthusiasm for inclusive practice and equal access.
