In Session FKA GRADJOB is an alternative contemporary art learning and development programme that focuses on the needs of early-career practitioners working/practicing in Scotland today, as well as the new challenges they now face as a result of COVID-19.
This is an exciting and pivotal time for In Session as we are currently in the process of becoming a SCIO. We are looking to recruit 3 Board Members to ensure that the organisation upholds its charitable aims, reflects its vision for an art sector founded on solidarity and achieves its mission to offer new opportunities for meaningful engagement, learning and professional development in order to remove barriers that prevent careers in the arts from being sustainable.
As Board Member, you will contribute your time and skills to help us achieve our goals and shape our strategic direction in accordance with our governing document, legal and regulatory guidelines, as well as providing input and support with our development strategy to ensure the financial sustainability of the programme.
We are looking for individuals with a wide variety of skills and backgrounds but particularly seeking experience in the fields of marketing and communications, business development and fundraising, community outreach and equality diversity and inclusion.
In Session believes that our key aims can only be fully achieved if equality, diversity and inclusion drive all aspects of our programme delivery and development. We want to ensure that our Board is representative of the diverse communities in Scotland today and encourage applicants with a diverse range of backgrounds to apply. We particularly encourage applications from those who are underrepresented in the art world and who face barriers to entry. These could, for example, be associated with race, disability, age, gender identity, sexuality, socio-economic or geographic barriers.
In Session Board Members are appointed for a three-year period. A maximum of two terms of three years can be served. The time commitment required is typically 2-3 days per month and Board members are asked to attend 2 meetings per year (June and December).
This is a voluntary position and is not remunerated.
