The Glucksman is currently recruiting for a Project + Development Assistant.
The Glucksman's creative work has been described by one of our marginalised community participants as a 'big light in a dark life' and we are seeking support to switch on that light and keep it burning brightly for as many lives as possible. This includes BEAM UP, a Creative Europe funded project that will support people who are visually impaired to inform how we plan and present our artistic programme. The Project + Development Assistant will provide administrative support to the Glucksman's participation in the BEAM UP project.
The Glucksman is a leading museum nationally and internationally for creative learning and access to the visual arts. The impressive and versatile gallery spaces present thought-provoking exhibitions that have thrilled audiences of all ages and abilities. We are extending our curatorial expertise to communities around Ireland through The Art Library, a new initiative that builds on our Classroom Museum work to loan artworks from the UCC Art Collection to schools, community hubs and healthcare settings. The Project + Development Assistant will act as co-ordinator for the project.
We seek philanthropic investment that recognises the power of creative learning and exploratory risk at University College Cork, and to support and sustain The Glucksman’s ambitious curatorial model. The Glucksman has been selected to take part in the RAISE Academy Programme 2021 –2022. RAISE, delivered by O’Kennedy Consulting since 2018, on behalf of the Arts Council, is an initiative aimed to promote private investment and drive philanthropic activity for arts and cultural organisations in receipt of statutory funding from the Government. The successful candidate will be in receipt of fundraising and strategy support from the RAISE Team, as well as exceptional professional development and networking opportunities.
The Glucksman is committed to establishing a supportive working environment in which the needs of all staff are recognised and their contributions valued and rewarded, and to creating and fully embracing an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated. As part of the University College Cork community, we strive to create a workplace that reflects the diversity of our student population where people from a wide variety of backgrounds learn from one another, share ideas, and work collaboratively.
