Job Details

Theatre Bristol is recruiting!

We are looking for 2 Artist Support Associates to be a part of our team in 2018.

Bespoke artist support has always been at the heart of what we do. We believe that by supporting independent practitioners, we help create the conditions for the most exciting live performance to be made and experienced in Bristol.

Bristol’s is a vibrant, healthy scene. Artists have always supported other artists, whether paid, gratis, funded or otherwise, and the strong and growing creative community has been built here in that spirit of generosity. We believe that voices involved in these often informal and unfunded structures belong alongside those of organisational expertise and experience, at the centre of our approach to supporting artists, informing how we help develop Bristol’s creative ecology. We are therefore working with 3 artists at a time, with contrasting practices and horizons to deliver our artist support programme.

Two of our current associates, Gemma Paintin and Emma Williams will be handing over to another pair in early 2018, who will work alongside Karla Shacklock. These are fixed-term, flexible and part-time positions open to current practitioners with a self-starting track record. Each is an excellent opportunity for an artist to share their invaluable perspective and know-how, whilst continuing to develop their own work.

We particularly encourage applications from people whose backgrounds andexperience are underrepresented within the creative industries, including Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic and D/deaf, Disabled or neurodiverse candidates.

Applications close Monday 29th January, 9am
