Work with Soul City Arts

We’re recruiting! A bit more about us and the roles on offer.

Soul City Arts (SCA) is an arts organisation committed to developing creative programmes with a vision of ‘connecting communities and transforming society through creativity’.  The organisation is founded and led by artist and curator Mohammed Ali MBE, who has built a strong team over the past two decades.  We create events and programmes that explore commonalities and shared narratives of people across all faiths and those of differing perspectives.  We seek to build hope, pride and confidence within communities enabling them to celebrate themselves and their narratives.   We like to help tell the stories of everyday people in extraordinairy form.  

Soul City Arts is based at a former industrial warehouse in Sparkbrook, Birmingham, which we have named ‘Port Hope’.  We have transformed the space into a creative oasis in the middle of inner-city Birmingham. Whilst we have delivered programmes across the UK and around the globe, we are proud to be embedded in the community and remain committed to delivering locally. Following our recent success in becoming an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, this is the perfect time to join the team as we continue to build our team, offer, and reach.
