Artist-in-Residence: food, futures and biodiversity

Freelance Part Time, 2.5 days per week (Flexible)

One year residency from April 2020

Fee £9,460

Barrow-in-Furness, Cumbria

Deadline for applications: 12 April 2020

Art Gene is announcing an opportunity for an experienced artist to work within our team and community of volunteers and participants on the further development of the Isle of Walney Community Growing Space (est. 2015) to facilitate learning around sustainable approaches to local food production and help redress biodiversity loss across the borough’s nine islands and the town’s urban core.

The Borough of Barrow-in-Furness is rated No.1 nationally for the number and quality if its natural heritage assets yet only a tiny proportion of local people engage with that environment (source: RSA Heritage Index, set. 2016).

Through providing a regular presence on the site and delivering a range of collaboratively developed public facing events, the successful candidate will lead on the year’s programme, including maintenance and planting activities and contributing to the further development of infrastructure across the facility.

They will also work closely on our collaboration with the University of Cumbria’s ‘Back On Our Map’ Species Restoration Project which will strengthen 12 native species in the South of the County and contribute to Art Gene’s Extreme views programme of events exploring the role of green space in the 21st C. urban core.
