SCAN Artist / Policy Officer

We know that the Covid pandemic has hit artists hard and we know that the wider impact of Covid in the UK has exacerbated existing inequalities. Could you help SCAN place artists at the heart of our policy and advocacy work? Can you join us in exploring how artists’ perspectives can be more central to the vision of art organisations and cultural funders? Can you research and share models of good equalities-focused practice and help us imagine, and advocate for, a fairer future for the contemporary art sector?

SCAN is look for a contemporary artist to work one day a week with our team for six months. We’ll ask for your input into tasks across our portfolio of work, feeding your knowledge and expertise into our everyday activities. As a key part of your responsibilities, we’ll ask you to help us develop and implement a pilot seed-fund to support grassroots events and activities as the sector rebuilds after the first impacts of the Covid pandemic.

Please note this post is a part-time salaried position, not an artistic project or residency. The role will suit someone comfortable with office routines and with experience of working as an artist in a range of contexts. We particularly welcome applications from artists with experience of equalities-focused or grassroots artistic activity.

We welcome applications from all sections of the community. Please note that SCAN’s office is accessible and based in Glasgow, but due to the Covid pandemic, the SCAN team currently work from home. We are committed to ensuring that any return to office working will be fully risk assessed.

Salary: £27,000, pro-rata
Days: 1 day a week over a six-month period, remote working initially
Deadline: Monday, 5 October
Interviews take place week commencing Monday, 19 October
