Curator in Residence

Closing date 17 July 2022

Outer Spaces is inviting applications from freelance Scotland-based curators to support and contribute to our programme exploring new models of artist support.

We are testing an alternative infrastructure for the arts in Scotland, putting art at the centre of communities and supporting artists to transform disused shops and office spaces into the beating heart of a new community focussed creative economy.

We take on vacant commercial properties on a temporary basis and use them to offer artists a unique environment where they can work in new ways and stretch their practice without any prescribed outcomes. This spirit of possibility guides our programming with artists and the cultural impact we want to have in the towns and cities where we work.

The Curator in Residence will support our Creative Scotland funded programme of artists’ residencies and commissions using temporary commercial property, with a focus on bringing an exhibition project to new audiences.

The residency will take place flexibly over a 5 month period from August until the end of December 2022 for a fixed fee of £5,000 (based on 20 days at a day rate of £250), and is open to Scotland-based freelance curators. You will be able to work from any of the Outer Spaces sites in Scotland and there is a travel and production budget.
