Fairbeats is celebrating its 10th birthday in 2020!

To help us celebrate we are looking to commission four Guest Artists to create new songs with our participants at Action for Refugees in Lewisham, Love to Learn Homework Club Wandsworth, Southwark Day Centre for Asylum Seekers and Refugee Action Kingston.

In the first instance we are recruiting a Guest Artist for Action for Refugees in Lewisham. Applications for
Guest Artists at the other three centres will happen at other points in the year.

We are committed to being child-led, so there is no predetermined theme for the songs – themes will be
decided by the children. They will also be involved in the recruitment process and will have the final say
on which Guest Artists they would like to work with.

We are looking for people who:
● are excited about working in collaboration with children ages 5-11 and existing Fairbeats Music
Leaders
● are creatively inspiring to our participants
● have experience of recording and producing their own music
● are available for all the dates and times listed
We are particularly interested in hearing from Artists who are refugees, asylum seekers or new migrants
and/or have local connections to the areas we work in.

The time commitment and fees are:
● 10 sessions on Saturdays between January and March 2020 (11am-1pm each week). £100 per
session
● Up to three full days for recording and producing the finished track. £200 per day for up to three
days
● The Artist will be required to attend a two hour induction and training session with Fairbeats
(January 2020). £30 fee
The terms of the role are:
● The contract will be fixed-term for the periods outlined above. Sometimes there are
opportunities to continue working with Fairbeats beyond this
● This is a freelance position and, as such, the successful candidate has responsibility for being
registered self-employed and managing their own tax payments and National Insurance
contributions
● The successful candidate will be required to complete an enhanced DBS check.

 

Interested Artists should apply to Fairbeats by submitting:
● a link to two examples of previous work, preferably one showing your work as a
recording/performing artist and one showing your work as a creative facilitator;
● your CV;
● a one-page cover letter detailing why you are suitable for the role.

Fairbeats staff will create a longlist from the applications. Longlisted applicants will be interviewed
following which a shortlist will be drawn up by the Fairbeats team. We will then present our shortlist to
the children (by sharing the links you have submitted) and ask for their input on the final decision.

Please submit applications to kaia.fairbeats@gmail.com by 5pm on Monday 18 November 2019 .

Interviews will take place week commencing 25 November 2019.

If you would like to discuss the role before applying, please contact Kaia at the email address above to
arrange a phone call.
