Expressions of Interest: Mareel Opening Season Guest Curator

Shetland Arts is seeking expressions of interest for an experienced and visionary guest curator to draw together a series of high profile acts for the formal opening season of Mareel, running from 6th October to 23rd December 2012.

Our ambition is for Mareel to become a 'destination venue', attracting artists and performers of national and international status and the opening season will underline this ambition.

The successful applicant will source at least four acts of artistic significance for this period and work with Shetland Arts' programming team to place them alongside acts and activities already under negotiation and confirmed.

The fee for the guest curator will be agreed by negotiation, half payable on the date of appointment, and half once the opening programme has been agreed and contracts signed.

The guest curator need not be based in Shetland but will be expected to visit Shetland at least twice during the process. These visits, plus all other reasonable travel-related expenses will be paid for by Shetland Arts in negotiation with us.

For more information, please contact: Kathy Hubbard, Head of Development on 01595 743843. Further information is also available at this link -  

Expressions of interest including a portfolio / CV should be made to:

Deadline for submissions: Monday the 4th of June 2012 @ 5pm, by email only.
