Freelance Community Producer – UPDATE [18.03.20]
Recently MoH announced that we were recruiting for a freelance community producer to join the MoH team from April 2020 to April 2021 to support delivery of the National Lottery Heritage Funded project ‘Outsiders Then and Now.’ This project will explore the heritage of grassroots movements in the homeless and LGBTIQ+ communities since the 1960s in order to inspire change today.
In light of the evolving situation with coronavirus, MoH is re-directing it’s activity in the short-term to support our community during the coronavirus pandemic. The widespread impact of the virus means that Outsiders Then & Now will face delays and consequently, we are unable to recruit this position at the present time. We hope to re-advertise the position as soon as possible.
This is a very sad development for us, and we apologise for any inconvenience this has caused people who have taken an interest in the role and who have sent us applications.
What happens next
We are anticipating some delays in the start time of the project and as soon as it is safe to do so, we will seek to re-advertise the position. We’ll contact anyone who has already applied and speak to them about whether or not they still want to be considered for the role when the time comes.
To learn more about this opportunity please read through the Community Producer brief [please note the previous deadline of 18 March will still be showing]

Overview of the project
When the project begins, it will initially be developing new activity over two sites in Islington: Clerkenwell Fire Station in partnership with Queerseum hosted by the Outside Project and a new weekly direct access Solidarity Space for people who are street homeless in Old Street in partnership with Streets Kitchen and Islington Council. The project will finish with creative outputs across the borough of Islington, designed and created by our community members. The Community Producer will support this activity throughout 2020 and play a key role in supporting this exciting new activity.
This brief would suit a freelance producer with an interest in joining a creative community of people who are committed to making social change through direct work with people, campaigning and creative projects. The project will be fast paced, intense and varied, but also very meaningful. The brief would suit someone with experience of producing cultural or creative projects with a range of partners, managing volunteers, working with artists and/or working directly with people who have been or are homeless.
