ATLAS Arts, an award-winning, producer and commissioner of contemporary art that creates connections between artists and audiences in the unique context of the Hebrides landscape, is looking to appoint an Artistic Director/CEO. This is a newly revised role carrying overall responsibility for the strategic direction, bold programming and sustainability of the organisation in the future.

ATLAS Arts, founded in 2010 to fill the gap in contemporary art provision on the Isle of Skye and the West Coast of Scotland, has developed a distinct curatorial practice and identity, becoming a key player in the ecology of arts organisations working in Scotland and demonstrating best practice in terms of place-driven, socially engaged practice. It showcases a high quality of artistic talent in its rural setting through commissions, research projects, film screenings, specific events, exhibitions, installations, performances, partnerships and creative learning programmes. From November 2019, it will be led by Ainslie Roddick, who will take up the role of Artistic Director/CEO, formerly Curator at CCA Glasgow.

ATLAS Arts is now looking to recruit an experienced creative Producer to plan, produce and deliver ATLAS Arts artistic programme in close cooperation with the Artistic Director/CEO. They will have a meticulous and ambitious work ethic and will have at least 3 years’ experience producing within the context of curatorial practice and/or visual culture. They will have a keen interest in the impact that contemporary art can make to the community of Skye and Lochalsh and will be passionate about creating connections between artists and audiences, and their work will respond to the unique qualities of the region, its landscape, its culture and its people. The Producer will work closely with the Artistic Director/ CEO – and, once in post the new Executive Director – to seek out and nurture partnerships locally, nationally and internationally, and in the delivery of a contemporary art programme that is fundamentally collaborative.
