Are you passionate about contemporary visual art and interested in a programme of professional support to develop a career in the arts sector?
If you are looking for a job working with artists, making exhibitions or working with diverse communities to encourage people to engage with contemporary art, this role could be for you.
At Site Gallery we care deeply that the work we create is relevant to our city and to people living in Sheffield. It is critical that our team is representative of the wide range of communities we engage with. Fair access to working in the arts and cultural sector is an urgent issue with people from lower socio-economic backgrounds still significantly under-represented amongst the artists and employees of UK arts organisations.
This role has been created through the Weston Jerwood Creative Bursary Programme. It is for someone at the beginning of their career, with between two and five years of experience (work or higher education) since leaving school and who identifies as coming from a low socio economic background (see below). We recognise that you may have faced barriers to work previously and we welcome applications from those who may not have taken a traditional route. The role includes a programme of professional development support and full training is provided.
Applications are now open.
The closing date is midday Monday 30 November 2020.
