Salary £25k pro-rata
Hours 3 days p/w
Interview Date 9th August
Founded in 2009, Andover’s Chapel Arts Studios (CAS) exists to be a centre for contemporary artists to develop their practice and its social impact. We are a rapidly growing artist-led, non-profit organisation consisting of 18+ Associate Artists. Three of our leading artists take management roles in day-to-day operations.
What we do:
1. Support artist development
2. Provide creative education for young people
3. Work to bring art into communities.
CAS is building a regional program of events and activities that challenge, inspire and connect diverse audiences. It’s inclusive and supportive community allows artists to develop their practice through peer-to-peer learning and find work opportunities.
CAS has now been offered NPO funding status, and is expanding the team accordingly.
You will work in a mutually supportive close-knit team with David Dixon (CAS Director, also leading CAS Education) and Maija Liepins (Project Manager, also leading Audience Engagement). You will be responsible for the external programming of the CAS Network and Arts programs, building relationships, and delivering arts events and collaborations.
With management, curatorial and fund raising experience, you will occupy an influential and exciting place at the heart of a rapidly growing organisation.
You will be given an 8 month trial working 3 days a week. Of that, 2 days are allocated for the curator role, and 1 day for the fundraising role. Upon completion of the trial period, this would extend into a 4 year position.
Working as a self-employed contractor for 3 days per week, remuneration will be at £25k pro-rata.
Starting October 2017. Subject to a successful bid for ACE interim funding, the CAS curator will begin the trial period.
Starting April 2018, CAS enters the NPO. The 4 year contract begins.
