Deggi Daaj International, Festival of Drumsets and Dance in Dakar, is seeking a Project Manager, starting presently, in advance of our June Protected content .
Responsibilities primarily include creation of festival budget, proposal writing, and subsequent communications & meetings with various established and prospective partners in the cultural, diplomatic, and corporate sectors in order to procure funding to meet the budget. As the festival dates approach, the work becomes more « in-the-field » of the Dakar creative economy of artists and cultural protagonists. After the festival, reports must be provided to the funding partners.
This is done in collaboration with the Artistic Director, and previous managers as needed for documents and infos of preceding editions of the festival.
It is a modest time commitment during the preparatory months. As the festival dates approach, and especially during the festival proper, we will have interns to assist in all regards.
Our payment is included in the budget which is created.
Please be fluent with spoken & written French & English (Wolof is a plus), inspired & open-hearted toward all facets of Dakar creative culture, and keen to synergize the mission of Deggi Daaj International. We look for an individual to work *with us rather than *for us : )
