Micro-commissions Facilitator

Aberdeen Art Gallery is a winner of Art Fund Museum of the Year 2020 and we are sharing our award with Aberdeen’s creative community. Before we launch the first of two rounds of funding for micro-commissions, we are inviting expressions of interest for the role of freelance Facilitator to support the commission process. 

The Facilitator will be key to the success of the commission process. Are you a creative practitioner with experience of facilitating projects and conversations, with an understanding of the creative sector in Aberdeen? Demonstrating your Aberdeen-based network and contacts, can you guide us and the awardees through the process? Could you facilitate and contribute to conversations between Art Gallery staff, volunteers, audiences and the creative community, exploring representation, identity and intersectionality in Aberdeen, within creative practice and identifying self in the museum, archive and gallery collection?
