Gallery Hosts are on hand in Furtherfield Gallery during the summer weekend opening times of Sat-Sun 11.00-17.00 to provide support to visitors. It is rewarding work because as we are situated in the centre of a busy urban park, you never know who will come in next. This means you will have a wide range of experiences talking about art people and no two days will ever be the same. This is seasonal work with a commitment to being on hand from April – October.
Community Curators are local residents who help us keep connected with the Finsbury Park community. They help us arrange and host meetings and events at Furtherfield Commons. This offers the chance to share insights and opinions on upcoming programmes and help a range of people access what we do. This is year round work with a minimum commitment to 6 months.
Work Placements allow emerging arts professionals a period of 6 months in which to engage in a wide range of activities within the organisation – from strategy and planning, to curatorial production, fundraising and marketing. All placements involve working as a Gallery Host doing interpretation work on weekends. You will be provided with up to 3 one-to-one mentoring sessions (depending on the duration of the placement) with one of the Directors and a guaranteed on-file reference for future work.
To apply for any of these roles please send a 1 page CV and 1 page cover letter on why you’d like to join us to email@example.com. We review applications in monthly cycles and will be in touch within 30 days of your application. If you no longer maintain a CV do just email and introduce yourself or say hello at one of our events.
We regularly look for new people to work with and post latest vacancies to our social media and relevant job listings.
Micro Residencies last a period of 3 months. You divide your time 50/50 between your own artistic/research practice and current Furtherfield projects. The Micro Residency includes a flex-desk at Furtherfield Commons in Finsbury Park, free wifi, light refreshments and a network of people interested in disrupting and democratising art and technology. You will be provided with up to 2 one-to-one exchange or mentoring sessions (depending on the duration of the placement) with one of the Directors and you have the option to host up to two of your own research-driven workshops or events in the Commons.
Maco Residencies, which last beyond 3 months and lead to a major development in artistic/research practice can be arranged subject to funding. We regularly partner with universities and independent research institutions to support new work and produce projects and publications. The Macro Residency includes support tailored to the specific project but again includes a flex-desk at Furtherfield Commons in Finsbury Park, free wifi, light refreshments and a network of people interested in disrupting and democratising art and technology.
To apply please send a 1 page CV and 1 page cover letter on why you’d like a Micro or Macro Residency to firstname.lastname@example.org. We review applications in monthly cycles and will be in touch within 30 days of your application.
