Nella Aarne
The successful candidate will be a highly motivated and experienced professional with excellent knowledge, passion and perspective of contemporary visual arts across the South West region. We are seeking candidates with experience in producing professional development programmes and communications and marketing experience. The successful candidate will be a confident and effective communicator with strong negotiation skills, experienced at developing and managing relationships at all levels, and a successful track record in high-quality delivery.

Job Purpose:
VASW will become an increasingly crucial network and resource hub for visual artists based in Bristol and the West of England, delivering an online training programme for the sector. VASW will also support sector development in Bristol, Bath and Weston-Super-Mare alongside Universities and Local Authorities and oversee the WEVAA R&D Fellowships and Bursaries.

The Online Producer will be responsible for delivering an online training programme to support, enhance and up-skill Bristol and the West of England’s visual arts sector. This programme will focus on supporting the practices of diverse artists, art workers, and artist-led organisations through fundraising and skills development workshops to equip people for the post-pandemic world better. Aimed at supporting practitioners to develop their resilience and gain new skills, the programme will also be developed in consultation with the sector, based on the changing needs identified across the region. As well as building on the success of VASW’s digital programme during the pandemic, staying online is also a sustainable way to make a resource for the organisation to provide a supportive, responsive and prominent resource hub capable of supporting practitioners across the region.

The Online Producer will be proactive in developing stakeholder relationships and identifying and undertaking fundraising to further VASW’s impact. This post will be a positive advocate for the ecology of the visual arts in the South West supporting development through connectivity, knowledge sharing and strategic intervention working within the region and as part of the CVAN network nationally. Central to this will be the development of an evidence base highlighting the prospective health and sustainability of the contemporary art sector, in collaboration with the CVAN Director and CVAN regional networks.

The role is expected to collaborate and be a proactive team member working across the organisation when required.
