    Artist Recruitment

    We hold artist recruitment processes for self-employed visual artists, musicians, storytellers, filmmakers and performing artists on a regular basis.

    From 2010 onwards we will be publishing a series of rolling deadlines. After these deadlines we will shortlist artists for a selection day and a selection of artists will be asked to attend. Please feel free to submit your interest with a C.V. at any point, but we will not normally consider you until deadlines have passed.

    If you are invited to attend a selection day, you will be asked to present on your practice to other artists attending. You will also be interviewed by the artistic programming team. You will then be asked to attend induction and other training, be asked to commit to our Artist Code of Practice, attend our regular artist network meetings and be considered for contracted work with the organisation. You will be subject to enhanced disclosure checks and will be asked to disclose any criminal convictions.

    If you wish to be considered in the next round, the submission date for CV’s is: to be confirmed.
