Europe Beyond Access (EBA) is Europe’s largest and most influential initiative to focus on the active participation of artists with disabilities in mainstream dance and theatre. Ten leading European performing arts institutions are joining forces to advance the work and careers of disabled artists – including Deaf artists, artists with physical disabilities, sensory impairments and learning difficulties – through an ambitious programme of transnational creation and circulation, artistic capacity building, and institutional learning. We are working to embed best practices and innovation in our mainstream organisations and networks to eliminate ableism in Europe’s cultural arena.
Each of the partners in the project has allocated a Project Manager to run the individual partner activities alongside the Artistic Leads and Marketing Teams from the partners. The EBA Consortium Project Manager will work alongside the EBA Project Director, and the EBA Consortium Communications Officer to ensure the good management of the whole collaborative programme. This means supporting good and timely communication with and between the partners, good communication with and meeting requirements of the European Commission Funder, and the good management of the key collaborative actions of the consortium collaboration. The EBA Consortium Project Manager will be employed by the lead partner of the consortium, Skånes Dansteater.
The EBA Consortium Project Manager is ensuring that the commitments to the Funder are met, and that evidence and proof required by the Funder is provided by the consortium.
The EBA Consortium Project Manager is the only full-time role on the project with 100% of time focussing on the project. EBA Project Director is 3 days a week, and partner colleagues are all part time on the project. Therefore, the EBA Consortium Project Manager is expected to develop a thorough and comprehensive knowledge of the complete overall project, as well as understanding the different needs and challenges of all ten partners. By doing so the EBA Consortium Project Manager can be the first point of call for questions from the project partners about project structure, finance, and schedule, as well as can be a guide to partners on how additional opportunities can be found to exploit the project for full impact.
The position offers:
- A full-time contract with monthly salary including pension scheme for the project period 1 January 2024 – 31 December 2027.
- Workspace and the support of committed team at Skånes Dansteater, Malmö in Sweden.
