Freelance paid internship for Field Notes and Back Lane West

Field Notes and Back Lane West are offer­ing a free­lance paid intern­ship, to be worked three days a week on a flex­i­ble basis over a six month period.

Field Notes and Back Lane West are offering a freelance paid internship, to be worked three days a week on a flexible basis over a period of six months from August 2021.

Both organisations are small visual arts organisations run on a not-for-profit basis. Field Notes commissions art works for public settings and produces festivals and artist events with a community focus. Back Lane West is an artist residency and project space in Redruth, with a programme of talks, professional development opportunities and artist-led events.

This internship is an opportunity to gain an insight into the day to day running of these two social enterprises and learn some of the key skills needed for administrative and creative production roles.

Over the course of the internship the successful candidate can expect to gain experience of:
- corresponding with artists and partners
- issuing contracts and invoices
- record keeping
- website and social media updates
- project planning and event organisation
- grant bid writing
One-on-one training will be offered as needed and a provision of one day a month has been made to allow for attendance at professional events and for the intern to undertake research to improve their knowledge of the sector.

No qualifications are needed, however strong communication and organisational skills as well as an active interest in contemporary visual art are essential. The successful candidate will need to have a desire to learn and the ambition to make a creative contribution to both organisations.

This is a home-working role, however applicants should be based in Cornwall and able to travel to Helston, Redruth or Penryn for meetings or events.

This internship is part funded by Cultivator Cornwall. Cultivator is funded by the European Regional Development Fund, the European Social Fund, Arts Council England, Cornwall Council and HM Government.
