The Music In Africa Foundation (MIAF), a non-profit organisation operating in the field of African music, has partnered with Goethe-Institut to implement the Music In Africa Sound Connects Fund.
Supported by the ACP-EU Culture Programme, a project implemented by the Secretariat of the African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) Group of States and funded by the European Union (EU), the fund is a multifaceted programme aimed at developing the creative sector in southern Africa through funding interventions, while also upskilling recipients across the SADC region. The fund focuses on the broad creative sector, including but not limited to, performing arts, gaming, animation, film, photography and videography using ‘sound’ as a central focus area.
The MIAF seeks to appoint a Regional Coordinator for the fund. The successful candidate will coordinate all the aspects of the fund, and oversee its daily management. MIAF seeks a mature, self-driven individual with exceptional project management skills, people skills, outstanding knowledge of the arts, grant management skills, and more importantly, agility – the ability to execute different functions within the project and the MIAF as a whole.
The successful candidate will work from head office in Johannesburg (Rosebank), South Africa.
