VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY – FUSE 2021 PROJECT MANAGER
Lichfield Fuse Festival 2018
Lichfield Arts is looking to appoint a volunteer Project Manager for its Fuse Festival 2021, which is due to take place from Friday 9th to Sunday 11th July 2021.
Fuse 2020 had to be cancelled because of Covid-19 restrictions, and we are determined to give the community something to smile about by delivering an excellent Fuse Festival in 2021. To do this we need to appoint an experienced and enthusiastic Fuse 2021 project manager, noting we are happy to consider joint applications where the role would be shared by two individuals.
Lichfield Arts organises, promotes and runs a wide variety of arts and community events in and around the city each year. These include live music concerts, outreach projects, the L2F folk festival, the Blues & Jazz Festival and our largest event, the free community Fuse Festival. It is attended by up to 18,000 people and includes live music, dance, DJ sets, poetry, visual art and other attractions. Great emphasis is placed on diversity and community involvement.

Message from our Chair
Following the most recent Trustee meeting we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all live performances until the end of Feb 2021. This was not an easy choice to make; however I’m sure that you will understand the need for us to be responsible and follow government guidance to ensure everyone’s safety. As soon as it is safe and practical we will be back with a new calendar of live music and events.
We are working on developing our digital capability and will continue to do so over the coming weeks and hope to have some content to share with you all soon. Please check our Facebook page for updates.
We have continued to review all of our overheads to ensure we keep spend to an absolute minimum to ensure our survival, through this prolonged period of inactivity. Lichfield Arts is hugely grateful to have received a grant from Lichfield District Council to help meet some of our day to day running costs, and to Computer Disposals Ltd who have helped us update our office I.T. with their donation of some newer Windows 10 PCs – a huge help for us. Thank you to both Lichfield District Council and Computer Disposals Ltd for their much-needed support in these very difficult times.
Now more than ever we will be hugely grateful for any support you can give by means of donations or by becoming a member.
With best wishes,
