Creative Producer, Animex

Teesside University

With the support of the Tees Valley Combined Authority, Teesside University is recruiting for a Creative Producer to lead the development and delivery of a new, public-facing programme for Animex, its annual international festival of animation, visual effects and games.

Bringing their own knowledge and experience of festivals and creative events to the role, the postholder will work closely with Teesside University’s academic team to build upon the existing industry and student-facing offer to develop new audiences, engage the local community, and build a dynamic new programme to bring venues and sites across Middlesbrough to life during the Animex Festival.

Inspired by the possibilities of the worlds of gaming, animation and VFX, the Creative Producer will deliver publicly accessible and exciting works and events that engage our communities in these dynamic sectors, balancing income-generating opportunities with free-to-access content to make the Festival sustainable into the future.

This is an exciting new role with an opportunity to make a real impact in the local region.
