Orange Regional Gallery is seeking experienced and motivated Central West artists to participate in its Artist Educator Pilot Program.
The program, which is funded by the NSW Government, invites practicing artists to develop and deliver exhibition-linked workshops and other activities for the gallery's younger audience.
Applicants will require an active creative practice, interest and knowledge of visual art and experience facilitating educational activities with diverse audiences.
They will also need excellent communications skills and the ability to work collaboratively to develop creative learning programs and hands-on activities for young people.
Gallery Director Bradley Hammond said they were looking for artists with experience in facilitating meaningful connections with art.
"The Artist educators will bring their own creative practice and experience to our programs, offering unique perspectives on our collections and exhibitions," Mr Hammond said.
Expressions of interest are open to people living in the Central West Local Government Areas of Orange, Bathurst, Blayney, Cabonne, Cowra, Forbes, Lachlan Shire, Lithgow, Oberon, Parkes and Weddin Shire.
The program will be presented at various stages from November 2021 to December 2022, with the majority of activities scheduled throughout 2022.
Interested artists can download an Expression of Interest brief and application form as well as a timeline and program of activities from the Orange Regional Gallery website or contact the gallery's Public Engagement and Education Officer Cecilie Knowles on 0409 932 306 for more information.
Expressions of Interest close on October 13, 2021.
