Associate Artist (Learning Programme)

New Art Exchange (NAE) is a leading contemporary arts space in the heart of inner city Nottingham that celebrates the region’s cultural richness and diversity. We present an ever-changing programme of art exhibitions and a vibrant public programme of events along with strategic project work focussed on audience development, community engagement and talent development. We are now seeking to establish a small team of Associate Artists to work with the Learning Producer to develop our programmes with schools and related service providers to increase young peoples’ access to NAE’s exhibitions and to enrich the cultural learning opportunity locally and within the region.

Each Associate Artist will be passionate about contemporary art, recognising the opportunity it creates in unlocking histories and stimulating important socio-political issues facing society today. Culturally aware with a good understanding of the issues affecting BAME communities, you will have a breadth of experience in translating complex artistic ideas into inspiring workshop experiences for children and young people across abilities. You will be a true believer that arts and culture make an invaluable contribution to the education and development of young people. As an excellent communicator you will create transformative experiences for young people by adopting highly creative approaches to learning.

NAE recently announced a significant uplift to our core Arts Council funding, helping to establish the organisation as the leading venue in the UK for culturally diverse arts. The Associate Artists will therefore join the organisation at an exciting time, helping to expand and deepen the value of our work across audiences.
