Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society: Community Events Officer (May-Aug 2023)

Closing date: Mon 17 Apr 2023: 10am

Edinburgh Festival Fringe Society are seeking to appoint a new member to the Community Engagement, Access and Learning (CEAL) Team.

Purpose of the Role
They will report to and work closely with the Community Engagement Officer to plan, deliver and evaluate a series of events and activities. These will form a part of the Community Engagement programme of work which aims to remove barriers to the Fringe for people in Edinburgh, and potentially further afield, who, for many reasons, find it hardest to connect with the city’s festivals.  

They will focus on delivering four main strands of work while at the Fringe Society: 

 - Fringe@ Events 
Deliver up to four events, organised with our community partners, to bring a taster of the Fringe to community locations during June and July.  

Fringe Up Your Street 
Sending out Fringe performers to local communities throughout the summer, including delivering relevant training for the artists we work with. This project focuses on Street Performers or local performers where possible. 

Fringe Days Out Board 
Work closely with the CE Officer to pilot or establish a Fringe Days Out Board to help steer the future of the CE work and the Society’s local engagement. Fringe Days Out is our community engagement flagship programme, and it was launched in 2017. It provides Edinburgh-based charities and community groups with free Fringe ticket vouchers, bus passes and additional support, so that their whole festival experience is free, and the organisations taking part are supported. There is scope for this pilot to tie in with the above strands of work. 

Support other areas of the community engagement programme – for example, aspects of the Fringe Days Out programme.
