Co-Director Call Out  – closing 1 Feb

Catalyst Arts welcomes expressions of interest applications for new Co-Directors

Catalyst Arts has been one of the most important and innovative artist-led spaces for contemporary art in Belfast since it began in 1993. The driving force behind the organisation has always been the determined and enthusiastic committee of directors who have worked over the years to ensure the gallery remains at the forefront of the visual art scene in Northern Ireland – improving, producing and promoting art and culture and the advancement of education and training in the arts.

Catalyst Arts directorship programme has a local and international reputation of providing a unique training ground for artistic, curatorial and cultural production. Applicants who are seeking to advance their experience within an artist-led model of gallery programming and operations are encouraged, with successful candidates gaining valuable skills in installation, production, funding applications, commissioning, outreach, education, archiving and administration work. This is an exciting opportunity to join Catalyst Arts at the beginning of a new chapter as one of Northern Ireland’s leading contemporary art organisations.

Although previous experience in all areas is not essential, interested candidates are encouraged to review and consider the director criteria when making their applications.

The role of co-director is a voluntary position carried out over two years, on a rolling basis.
