UrbanApa is looking for an Artist-Facilitator! DL 23.6!

Art community UrbanApa is searching for a part-time artist-facilitator to join their activities starting in August 2022!

Founded in 2009, UrbanApa is an anti-racist and feminist art community that acts as a platform for art events, new ways of doing, and discourses that centre on art. Now we search for an artist who has experience in facilitation, to lead and support UrbanApa’s Mentoring Platform for Young Artists in 2022-2023.

A fixed fee of 4 000 € will be offered for the chosen person. The work is spread to a duration of 8 months. The familiarisation for the job and the curation process for the next participants of the Mentoring platform will be done between 8.-26.8., so at least two weeks of working time is necessary in the month of August.

Very important aspect is that the candidate shares the values and aims of UrbanApa and wants to participate in constructing structures which support equity and diversity in the society and the art field. We aim to have the interviews and make the decision during the month of June.

What we expect from the candidate:

  • Experience as an artist
  • Experience of facilitation, curation and/or mentoring
  • Experience of coordinating a project
  • Pedagogical experience is seen as an advantage
  • Language requirements: English. It is not necessary to speak Finnish. However, if the candidate is Finnish-speaking, great command of English is also required.
  • Please send your application, CV and possible recommendations to Lilja Lehmuskallio, urbanapa.rekry@gmail.com by 23.6.2022. Interviews can be held already during the application period.
