Atlas Arts: The School of Plural Futures Lead Artist/Curator

Closing date 26 November 2020

Job title: Lead Artist/Curator
Reporting to: Artistic Director
Contract type: Part time, 0.4 FTE, fixed term of 8 months.
Salary: £28,000 (pro rata to 2 days a week)Working with ATLAS Arts and a core group of eight between January and July 2021, the artist/curator will be responsible for planning and delivering 5 x 3 day sessions on Skye between January and July 2021 (in person where COVID restrictions allow).The artist/curator should have experience in process-based arts projects and creative programming – with a keen interest in alternative pedagogy and curriculum building.

The School has a broad focus on climate crisis and social justice; we want to charge these discussions with imaginative, pleasurable, radical potential – building poetic strategies and alternative communities. The lead artist/curator will create an imaginative framework for the school – and will work with students to build and realise an ecologically focused, decolonial curriculum that learns through histories of Skye, Lochalsh and the Highlands region. Responding to the place, people and culture in which it is situated, the programme should explore ways of thinking and responding to the climate crisis in the present – exploring what is happening locally and to situate this globally.

The project is fully funded by a grant of £36983 enabling an ambitious and well resourced curriculum of workshops and events, and 8 student stipends.
