Strange Field is recruiting individuals and/or groups to form a voluntary programming committee who will be responsible for curating and delivering a public programme, at both The Pipe Factory and French Street in Glasgow’s East End.
Committee members will be offered professional development, tailored to their interests and needs. This may include but is not limited to: digital techniques, exhibition installation, event coordination, fundraising, marketing, risk assessing and venue management.
This opportunity is aimed at early-stage career creatives, of all art forms, and curators who would like to experiment and develop their skills, in a supportive, community-focused environment. No previous programming experience is required and there is no fixed time commitment each week for this position.
We are particularly interested to hear from candidates who consider themselves underrepresented and/or have links to the East End of Glasgow.
Previous committee members have gone on to work with arts organisations across Glasgow, such as Agile City, CCA, Glasgow International, House for an Art Lover and LUX Scotland.
Who we are?
Strange Field, formally known as The Pipe Factory, provides opportunities for creative experimentation, learning, and development, with a focus on underrepresented and early-stage career artists, and our local community, at both French Street and The Pipe Factory in Glasgow's East End.
Between 2012 -2018, we ran a public programme at The Pipe Factory, that included residencies, exhibitions, events and publications.
Strange Field is one of three founding members of Friends of The Pipe Factory CIC. In March 2021, Friends of The Pipe Factory purchased the Pipe Factory building as a community asset.
In March 2021, Strange Field expanded to French Street Studios, in Dalmarnock.
Our vision is for open access platforms for creativity to be embedded across Glasgow, at the heart of communities, as catalysts for increased creative development, education and experimentation, inclusion and wellbeing.
How to apply
Please send a CV and cover letter, (each 1 page max), to firstname.lastname@example.org, explaining why you are interested in the role and detailing any relevant experience. You may also provide an image portfolio (2 pages max), but this is not required.
Closing date February 28th, 5pm.
Programming at French Street and The Pipe Factory will take place on the ground floors of each building, both are wheelchair accessible, although there are not currently wheelchair accessible toilets at either space. We have plans to address this issue in the near future. If you have specific access requirements, please get in touch with us to discuss your needs.
