Artists Development Co-ordinator, Chisenhale Art Place


We are seeking a new Artists’ Development Co-ordinator (ADC) to initiate and co-ordinate programmes of career development activities for artists. This is a busy position, one day a week, and is based at the Artists’ Studios at Chisenhale Art Place. 

The role currently focuses on the development of two programme strands: Into the Wild and Studio Residencies & Awards.  Into the Wild is an evolving programme that has gained substantial recognition since its inception, which was fuelled by a desire of Chisenhale studio holders to help and encourage the next generation of artists. Funding has just been received for Year Five of the programme; however, there is considerable room for the incoming postholder to devise and steer programme directions with input from studio holders.

The Studio Residencies & Awards programme consists of the Studio4 Summer Residencies and the Pete Lloyd Lewis Studio Award. Responsibilities include the recruitment and selection of artists (as part of a team) and helping each residency artist to conceptually develop any talks and events they have agreed to do. The aim is to create a stronger learning experience for all, while attracting new audiences to Chisenhale Art Place.

Other recent ADC activities include an annual two-week takeover of our public studio by Curating Students at Goldsmiths College, and a partnership to deliver Standpoint Futures Residencies. The postholder also prepares a regular newsletter promoting all the activities taking place within the Studios and further afield.
