Opportunity for a Visual Artist

Artists’ Brief and Development Opportunity – Room 13

We are looking for a visual artist to take up an exciting opportunity in Lochaber.

We have a nine month contract to offer an artist who will work with us to develop and deliver a series of workshops and creative engagements with community groups and local schools, including Lochaber High School. This work is part of Room 13’s delivery as a partner in the Highland Youth Arts Hub and the contract will be awarded to someone who is socially engaged, self motivated and who, ideally, has some experience of delivering innovative projects and working with the wider community, specifically young people.

The Highland Youth Arts Hub (HYAH) promotes cross-art-form working. Applications are welcome from artists who are comfortable working with a range of media, including digital software, photography, music and creative writing.

The aims of the role will be to –

  • Work with pupils and staff across different departments at Lochaber High School to promote engagement with, and understanding of, contemporary arts practice.
  • Identify, enthuse, mentor and involve a core of young people as collaborators in visual art projects.
  • Develop and deliver a series of workshops with community groups keen to work with Room 13.
  • Develop own practice through using studio and gallery space available.

Room 13 are one of twelve partner organisations that make up the Highland Youth Arts Hub (HYAH). The Highland Youth Arts Hub is one of nine such groups that have been set up across Scotland to deliver the National Youth Arts Strategy; ‘Time to Shine’, supported by Creative Scotland.

This opportunity includes the offer of accommodation, and the selected artist will be supported by the wider Room 13 International team based in Lochaber.
