Title of position advertised
Artist Facilitator at Kettle’s Yard

Fees range from £85 for a two-hour workshop to £200 for a full day workshop.



Kettle’s Yard is seeking creative and experienced Artist Facilitators to support the delivery of our Learning & Community programme over the forthcoming year.

Kettle’s Yard is the University of Cambridge’s modern and contemporary art gallery. Kettle’s Yard is a beautiful house with a remarkable collection of modern art and a gallery that hosts modern and contemporary art exhibitions.

The Learning & Community team at Kettle’s Yard is seeking to expand its pool of Artist Facilitators to support the delivery of its programmes. This is a hugely exciting time for the organisation as we lead up to welcoming visitors back to Kettle’s Yard following our major capital redevelopment. We are looking for talented Artist Facilitators to develop inspiring, challenging and exciting workshops and activities with a range of people in a variety of environments across Cambridge.

We particularly welcome applications from artists with skills and/or experience in a broad range of media, across and beyond the visual arts, and whose own practice incorporates elements of collaboration.

Kettle’s Yard engages with a wide range of participants: from the very young to the very old, within formal education and adult learners, people with specific access needs including learning and behavioural difficulties, young people learning outside mainstream education, people new to English, the local community and visitors to Cambridge.

Our Artist Facilitators will reflect the communities and participants who engage with Kettle’s Yard and we welcome applications from diverse cultural backgrounds, older artists and deaf and disabled artists.

This is an application to join a register of Artist Facilitators which does not guarantee paid employment. Artist Facilitators are assigned work according to skills, experience and links to their own artistic practice, as and when workshops and projects are required. 

What we expect from you:
- to work within our values and policies

- to plan and deliver sessions with the consideration of our audiences and connecting them with the themes and ideas of our collection, exhibitions, or specific project aims
- to provide session plans and material lists in a timely manner and supplying specialist materials or equipment if required
- to work with the Learning & Community Team to set and clear the spaces
- to have a clear enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) check or be willing to undertake one
- to have valid public liability insurance – minimum £2 million
- to provide evidence of your right to work in the UK

To apply please provide:

-  A statement of no more than 300 words to include; information about you, your arts practice, relevant experience, specialisms and why you want to work with Kettle’s Yard.

-  A one page CV – please provide web links and a referee

-  Evidence of up to five examples (photographic or weblinks) of your arts practice and previous relevant learning engagement work/projects. Deadline: Midnight, Thursday 1st June 2017
