Bloc Projects is an artist-led project space in the centre of Sheffield, which presents exhibitions, events, residencies, exchange projects and educational activities. Established in 2002, the organisation provides a platform for early-mid career artists, encouraging experimentation, collaboration across disciplines and critical dialogue among artists, audiences and partners in the city and further afield.

Commencing in January 2018, Bloc Projects will be delivering our Artist Development Programme (ADP) to provide resources and opportunities to artists locally, nationally and internationally by focusing on a range of talks, discussions, one-on-one sessions and an international artistic exchange.

The post-holder will work with the Bloc Projects Director and Board of Directors to deliver the following:

  • Curate, select and deliver a monthly programme of engaging public discussions and talks.
