Artist/Project Coordinator

Salary / Fee: 
 Closing Date: 
Monday, 5 March, 2018
The Old Fire Station on George Street opened in November 2011 and houses two separate organisations – Arts at the Old Fire Station (AOFS) (a professional arts centre offering performance and rehearsal spaces, a gallery, artists’ studios, and a shop) and Crisis Skylight Oxford (a centre for homeless people offering free education, training and support to people that are homeless, at risk of becoming homeless or have been homeless in the last two years).
‘OUR PLACE’ Artist /Project Coordinator
We are looking to employ an artist/project coordinator to curate our exciting new visual arts project running from April 2018 through to January 2019. The successful applicant will plan, curate, deliver and evaluate ‘OUR PLACE’ (working title), a project that will explore the relationship between participants and the Old Fire Station and surrounding areas. This theme is deliberately loose as it is envisaged that it will be explored and refined with Crisis clients as part of the research and development.
The aim of the project is to:
- enable people facing severe disadvantage to develop their skills and confidence as artists and contributors
- increase the skills of professional artists in working with vulnerable adults
- engage the public in a high-quality exhibition and series of workshops
- help AOFS and Crisis develop their model of social inclusion
