As part of our commitments to anti-racism and to deepening the involvement of our Members in our artistic output, Clean Break has created this role to diversify the range of voices and perspectives shaping our artistic output, and to increase the writing pathways and further develop the playwriting skills of our Members.
The Creative Associate will be a dedicated theatre practitioner with a commitment to ground-breaking artistic output, who believes that theatre can change lives. You’ll probably describe yourself as a dramaturg, a director or a writer, or a combination of these.
We are looking for a friendly, positive, and self-motivated practitioner who really understands the unique importance of Clean Break’s work, and is bold in their commitment to inclusivity in the theatre sector.
You’ll be an organised and strategic thinker, and skilled at working with writers, particularly emerging voices, to develop their work and practice. Current artists on commission to Clean Break are: Natasha Marshall, Ambreen Razia, Yasmin Joseph, Sonia Jalaly, Deborah Bruce, Kirsty Housley, Theresa Ikoko. You’ll have a strong network of artists and venues who you have worked with that you’ll bring to Clean Break. And you’ll be energised by considering and generating new ways of working with artists and emerging writers.
