John Hansard Gallery, part of the University of Southampton, a leading public gallery of contemporary art and an Arts Council England National Portfolio Organisation, is seeking to appoint a temporary Programming Coordinator, to work with the Exhibitions team at an exciting moment for the Gallery. The role is expected to be full time for a 6 month period.
The successful candidate must have previous experience working within a professional arts organisation. With strong skills, knowledge and experience of exhibition organising and working with artists, you will be an effective communicator and writer, confident in working with colleagues and stakeholders at all levels, inside and outside the organisation. An interest in audience development, public programmes, marketing and communications would be advantageous, enabling you to take full advantage of working within a small yet dynamic team, at a pivotal moment in its history.
The Gallery, established in 1979, has played a dynamic role in the cultural life of Southampton and the region, through its critically acclaimed curatorial and education programme, central to which is the Gallery’s contribution to the world renowned research culture of the University. In the Spring of 2017, the John Hansard Gallery enters a new chapter in its history as it re-locates into the centre of Southampton, at the heart of the City’s Cultural Quarter in a stunning arts complex of gallery, performing arts and film/studio space. The move will triple the gallery space and will provide an opportunity for greater impact, developing the Gallery as a catalyst for change for the University and the city, as a leading developer of arts production and as an organisation reaching out to diverse audiences locally, nationally and internationally.
