Opportunity of the Week @ World Heart Beat

This week's featured volunteer opportunity is:

Arts Administrator, World Heart Beat

Opportunity Description

Administrator needed for a new children's charity that is an inspiring place where children of all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds can come and play and learn music under the guidance of top musicians from around the world.

We would like the volunteer administrator to help organise the creative flow that is happening at the academy. To assist with the planning and arranging of timetables and programmes and to organise a database of students, friends of the academy and networks.
Assistance in the marketing of our performances, classes and events advertising, producing posters or publicity leaflets/ newsletters and attracting media coverage is also be welcome but not necessary.

However the ability to maintain good administrative order in a very creative and flexible environment is the most essential part of the role.

Our programmes are culturally linked - to remove all obstacles and barriers in order to provide access into the positive impacts of music education, intellectual, social and personal development regardless of ones background is at the heart of what we do.

We have found that the power of music lifts children out of isolation and disadvantage. Learning and playing music enables young people to feel that they are a part of something, something that nobody can take away from them. This confidence translates to other areas of their life, giving them the freedom to make choices and to be happy and successful adults. These life skills have never been more important than in the current global economic situation. The atmosphere that we have created through music is giving, open and alive. Hospitality is really important for us also.

We need you to:

  • assist with creation and distribution of communications materials e.g. newsletters, leaflets etc
  • write news and articles for press releases,
  • distribute media materials to local media outlets
  • help promote our workshops, concerts and classes throughout the community
