No Jobs in the Arts are looking for an emerging curator, linked to Leicestershire, to collaborate with us on our digital interview series, ‘A conversation with:’
‘A conversation with:’ Project Description:
The ‘A conversation with:’ activity is part of a larger Arts Council funded research project to deliver connected activities supporting emerging creatives and the recovery of the visual arts post COVID-19, in the nationally affected lockdown area of Leicester/shire. As such, we are particularly keen to hear from applicants with a link to Leicester/shire (for example, those who live, work, or study in the region).
Through the ‘A conversation with:’ activity, we hope to offer the guest curator the opportunity to develop their skills working with visual artists and their curatorial interests. ‘A conversation with:’ is a chance to bring together, document, and showcase the practices of six contemporary visual artists linked to the East Midlands. We hope to offer the emerging artists an opportunity to reflect on their practice and a professional feature.
The guest curator will work collaboratively with Ryan Boultbee and Charlie Collins (No Jobs in the Arts), to curate and create a series of six interviews with emerging creatives. Working together, we will publish an open call, select artists for the project, generate interview questions, facilitate conversations with artists, transcribe responses and publish the interviews.
We think this could be a great opportunity for anyone seeking to gain experience in the arts. The curatorial role could be well suited to a current student, recent graduate, or anyone with an interest in supporting emerging visual creatives in the East Midlands.
The guest curator is to be employed on a freelance basis. They are responsible for their own tax affairs and payments with HM Revenue and Customs. The £704 fee outlined above is all inclusive and includes all expenses. You will need to invoice us for the work outlined in this document, for the stated fee.
The project will be administered digitally (remote working). The guest curator will need access to a computer, preferably with a microphone/video camera. We are unable to provide this equipment.
