Head of Programme
£35,000 - £40,000 per annum
Firstsite is a contemporary visual arts organisation based in a stunning, award winning Gallery in Colchester, Essex. Since opening in 2011, Firstsite has welcomed half a million visitors and established its reputation for being a Gallery of regional and national importance. Firstsite advocates an integrated vision for its artistic programme, one that comprises temporary exhibitions, learning and partnerships, a film and music programme, artist’s commissions and projects and publications. This is a new, pivotal and demanding role in the organisation, created at a moment of significant opportunity for Firstsite as it enters a new phase of provision for Colchester.
The Head of Programme will work with the Director to creatively develop the strategy and delivery of Firstsite’s artistic and learning programme in line with the Business Plan – with specific focus on aligning the gallery with local and regional needs to generate increased and sustainable audience relationships and world class artistic activity.
