Lewisham Urban Opera – Project Inclusion Officer


We are looking for a dynamic and committed Inclusion Officer to join our team for MTFA’s new Arts Council funded community arts project, starting this Autumn and culminating next July with a new Urban Opera for Lewisham Borough of Culture 2022.  The project takes place in and around the Lewisham area and aims to reach as diverse a range of participants as possible to reflect our borough and the communities within it, with a focus on those communities and groups that might benefit most from involvement in such an arts project. The workshops will be led by a team of professionals from across the creative performing arts and our programme rolls out across schools and the community through Autumn and Spring terms. The role may extend to the summer term which will encompass rehearsals and the final performance of the Lewisham Urban Opera in July next year for the Lewisham Borough of Culture 2022.


Lewisham Urban Opera is all about being part of the celebrations for Lewisham’s Borough of Culture year as well as providing a legacy of demystified opera and skills for future local productions. We hope to establish a new youth chorus, as we continue the longstanding but now no longer running Royal Opera House ‘Write an Opera’ outreach programme. This is the first in what will be a nationwide rolling community programme.


We are running mixed ability and multidisciplinary 1.5-hour workshops in 5 schools: 2 primary, 2 secondary and a SEN school, starting from 13th September, alongside weekly 2-hour Saturday community workshops. The Saturday Community Workshops start with a taster session on 11th September and begin in earnest from 25th. The workshops are offered for no cost to the residents of Lewisham.


The role of Inclusion Officer will centre on populating the Saturday Community Workshops. These will run from 11am to 1pm starting at The Fellowship and Star (venue and time to be confirmed).



You will receive £500.00 per calendar month to be invoiced from September 2021 to March 2022 averaging to 4 days per month for the duration.


Deadline for applications

12 September
