Creative Producer

What does a Creative Producer actually do?




Whereas when we first started the work of a producer should be invisible, the more invisible the better the producer, but nowadays where everybody is fighting for the same pots of funding, the  work and profile of a producer needs to be visible.

I remember receiving a phone call in 2004 from a consultant who was undertaking a research study for the Arts Council into the role of Creative Producer. Within a week, I heard that term amongst colleagues quoted as if it had been long established.

We needed a job title, arts manager, arts administrator, but the responsibilities and skills and network necessary increased but the title, wage and recognition remained.
