Join the Impact Arts Team

As Impact Arts continues to grow and support more people and communities, we recognise the need to strengthen and develop our team. We are delighted therefore to be able to offer four new positions to join the team. Three of these will support the core of our organisation – Development Officer, Facilities & Infrastructure Manager and Facilities & Maintenance Technician and will ensure our systems, assets and infrastructure operate efficiently as well as securing the vital funds we require to deliver our work.

Our work with older people throughout Covid has posed particular challenges in terms of supporting them with their wellbeing and isolation. In direct response to these needs we have designed a new Wellbeing Support Worker role to ensure we can meet the needs of our 100+ Craft Café members throughout this time and into the future.

Impact Arts is made up of a warm, fun and caring team and in joining the organisation you will be working with creative and skilled individuals who believe deeply in the impact our work has on the lives of those we work with and who place our values at the heart of all we do.

In line with our mission to tackle the inequalities that exist in Scotland, we welcome applications from all people and encourage those from under-represented groups to.

Artist - Cemented Together Project

Shire Housing Association has commissioned Impact Arts to deliver an inclusive community engagement project leading to the installation of public mosaic artwork at Netherthird Community Centre, Cumnock.

The final design, created by a Netherthird Primary school pupil, has already been decided via a competition to celebrate The Netherthird Community’s 70th Birthday in 2019.

We are recruiting for an artist to create the high-quality, original mosaic artwork, for public display in Netherthird.

Due to the current Covid pandemic, the original plans for the local community to create the artwork alongside the Artist in a series of hands-on sessions are no longer viable. Our revised approach is to reach the community through a series of online creative writing consultation sessions, competition and an intergenerational postcard exchange. Through this, we hope to connect with the community, and in turn help them connect with each other during this difficult time.

The timing of the mural installation will fall in winter, as opposed to the original Summer plan. This time of year has been identified as difficult for many of the local community, and again we hope that the project can bring a sense of togetherness and light.

The Artist will liaise with the Community Facilitator for the duration of November, and incorporate the community’s ideas whilst keeping intact the existing brief.

All relevant stakeholders will meet to discuss/view designs prior to implementation.

Impact Arts & Shire Housing Association will arrange and confirm details of this meeting. Due to budget constraints, feedback from Stakeholders will be restricted to a maximum of 1 change prior to the final design being signed off.

Impact Arts are able to provide an Assistant to support the Artist on the day of installation.

Closing date for applications: 9am, Monday 2nd November 2020 Artist

Interviews: 4th and 5th November 2020 (via Zoom)

Artwork Install & Launch: week beginning 14th December 2020
