Salary: £27,000 – £30,000, dependent upon qualification and experience
Hours: Full-time, 35 hours per week
Contract: One-year fixed-term contract

This role will be a residency truly embedded within Heart of Glass. You will be part of the Programme Team, leading on the Schools and Colleges Programme, creating a series of projects to deliver with key partners.

Aimed at an artist who has significant experience working with schools and colleges, this is an opportunity to develop your own practice and creatively lead on projects from seed to fruition. As well as creating your own projects with key schools, you will create a series of online resources that will complement the Heart of Glass programme. All this while working with your own budget, allowing you to shape projects and collaborate with other artists.

In this role you will also support schools to progress their Artsmark status and support pupils involved with projects to achieve Arts Award and will represent Heart of Glass within local education networks, offering a creative voice and finding opportunities to develop project ideas and new partnerships.

This is a fantastic opportunity for an artist to develop their practice in this area, at an appropriate pace with continued support from Heart of Glass over a substantial period. Heart of Glass is open to this opportunity being fulfilled by a small collective or a job share.
