NORWICH UNIVERSITY OF THE ARTS
ART ASSISTANT NEW GEOGRAPHIES PROJECT
22 hours per week, fixed term to 30th September 2019
£12,055 to £13,472 per annum


Norwich University of the Arts is seeking to appoint an Arts Assistant to sit within East Gallery NUA. East Gallery NUA is an exciting, city centre gallery space showcasing the best modern and contemporary art. Exhibitions are originated by Norwich University of the Arts or the result of collaborations with national and international partners. The venue provides valuable experience for students studying MA Curation, as well as those studying other courses who can gain valuable experience working as Gallery Assistants. The East Gallery NUA venue and programme is funded by Norwich University of the Arts.

East Gallery NUA is proud to be partnering with the East Contemporary Visual Arts Network (ECVAN), and artist duo Cooking Sections, for this post.

Project brief The North sea has deposited, transported and eroded the sand that defines the East Anglian coast for millennia. More recently, these movements have been magnified and accelerated in a series of events from the 1953 North Sea Flood to the 2018 Beast from the East. Rising sea-levels, recurrence of severe storms, and the construction industry increasingly dredging the offshore seabed for sands, shift tidal flows and increase the chance of cliff landslides due to crashing of waves on weakened ground.

In collaboration with New Geographies and East GalleryNUA, Cooking Sections are developing a project which explores and responds to the social, economic, and legislative factors of coastal erosion in East Anglia. Working with local residents, community groups, archives and arts organisations to explore the implications of increasingly changing littoral, the project uses spatial and performance practices to develop modes of coastal inhabitation that are adaptable to shifting shorelines.

The Arts Assistant will support the delivery of East Gallery NUA programme, in particular ensuring that the New Geographies Project is well managed and that day-to-day tasks including liaising with artists and their communities, the New Geographies consortium, and wider audience marketing and publicity are effectively delivered.

You will provide administrative and project support from the research and development stage to completion.

Educated to degree level in a relevant subject, you will have excellent organisational and administrative skills as well as the ability to work as part of a project team.  Experience of supporting activities within an arts/cultural organisation eg exhibitions or level events is essential together with experience of working in a team to deliver a project.

Closing date:  5.00 pm on Tuesday 26th March
Interviews will be held on: Wednesday 3rd April
