Director of the Humanities Cultural Programme

Applications for this vacancy closed on 2 May 2022 at 05:00PM
Thanks to a landmark £175 million gift from businessman and philanthropist
Stephan A. Schwarzman, the Schwarzman Centre for the Humanities at the
University of Oxford will bring together the university’s Humanities faculties
under one roof for the first time, alongside the Ethics in AI Institute, the
Oxford Internet Institute, and a major Humanities library. At the heart of the
building will be a suite of performing arts venues and public spaces,
including a 500-seat concert hall, a 250-seat theatre, a black-box
experimental performance lab, a rehearsal hall (which can be used for dance),
a cinema with 35mm projection facilities, and an exhibition hall and café. The
activities that will animate these spaces will comprise an ambitious and wide-
ranging Cultural Programme, bringing new audiences and world-class artists
together to engage creatively with Oxford researchers.





The Humanities Division is now looking to appoint the inaugural Director to
lead and inspire the Humanities Cultural Programme (HCP) in the run-up to the
building opening in summer 2025 and in its early seasons. This is an exciting
and unique opportunity to create a visionary cultural programme of multiple
events in collaboration with Oxford’s outstanding academics, staff and
students, and working closely with key external partners. Balancing artistic,
creative and commercial activities, the Director will attract and host world-
leading artists and ensembles, devise strategic research-led programmatic
themes and series, and explore new forms of public engagement that will speak
to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.





The Director will be an exceptional individual with a proven record in
creating and delivering a world class artistic programme across multiple art
forms and formats, from live to virtual, with a particular focus on all genres
of music. We are looking for someone with proven capacity for inspirational
and inclusive leadership, with intellectual curiosity and vision, with
excellent collaboration and communication skills, and with the ability to
represent the Cultural Programme and the Humanities Division to both internal
and external stakeholders.

The Humanities Division values its staff and students, and we are proud of the
steps we are taking to promote, celebrate and support equality and diversity
across the Division and our faculties. We therefore welcome applications for
this role from candidates whose own background and experience will bring
diverse perspectives to enhance our Humanities Cultural Programme.
