Scottish Prison Arts Network (SPAN) are looking for a freelance part time Artist Producer to join their team for a 10 month period.
The role includes responsibility for producing and facilitating a programme of 3 creative conversations bringing together a range of cultural and criminal justice stakeholders from the Arts and Criminal Justice sectors in Scotland.
This year of creative conversations is designed to support SPAN and potentially new and existing stakeholders or partners to focus on specific or identified issues that the sector faces, from changes in criminal justice services to supporting mainstream arts organisations in becoming more aware of addressing equal opportunities and exploring throughcare. Each conversation will seek to create conditions for new collaborations and creative learning.
We are ideally looking for a very organised and experienced committed arts practitioner with a real and active understanding of the value and importance of the arts in criminal justice settings and a demonstrable experience in creating engaging events or opportunities that support purposeful conversations and learning.
This job is fee based and is perhaps best suited to an individual working on an existing portfolio of projects.
The Scottish Prison Arts Network (SPAN) is a charity first set up in 2011 to support and advocate for artists and arts projects in Scottish Prisons.
Since it’s creation the charity has gone from strength to strength and has over 250 members attending events every year. We are passionate about supporting creative opportunities for prisoners, their families and communities affected by crime and providing high quality support and training across the sector.
