Artist Liaison and Research
The Artist Liaison handles all aspects of coordination of visiting artists’ schedules, with the assistance of the Producer and Arts Director. We meet incredibly gifted and talented musicians or the unsigned variety. They are very difficult to research, a bit like the lack of experience on a school leavers’ CV. Some have an online presence that is easier but most, alas, you really have to dig around. Welcome to the world of live music and live TV.
Where does the volunteering take place?
How many hours would I be expected to work?
There are volunteering positions with more sociable hours, but sound is a calling and the people you get to socialise with are probably those you want to be with anyway! There are long hours and often extremely hectic schedules, but that’s nothing to worry about if you’re making your favourite band tick, right? And, it’s only once a month for 10 months of the year.
How long would the volunteering last for?
