As well as devising new projects and programmes, there are a number existing projects the Visual Arts and New Media Project Producer will continue to develop. These include an arts engagement programme in the Gallowhill neighbourhood of Paisley, the development of a cultural engagement space in Paisley town centre, facilitating regular artist meets to support the local sector and a crafting/making project for vulnerable women in the Unpaid Work programme.
Communication, teamwork and organisational skills are essential, as well as a deep sensitivity to the needs of artists and arts professionals. While you will work primarily within your specialism, the Arts Project Producers will be expected to take a portfolio approach which may include a specific community or theme, such as well-being or education. Additional experience in these areas will be welcome.
