Learning Producer

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 a strategic and experienced learning specialist 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.

The Learning Producer 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 exhibition, workshop and project experiences for children and young people across abilities. You will be a true believer that arts and culture makes an invaluable contribution to the education and development
of young people. As a confident communicator and networker you will be inspired to reach out to and support local schools to expand their artistic and cultural learning provision.

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