Govanhill Baths Arts Project Manager (Culture Collective Project)
3 days (22.5 hours) a week
£14,918 per annum (fulltime equivalent £24,862) plus 4% pension
An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced, motivated and passionate Project Manager, with experience of Creative Producing, to join the Govanhill Baths team and lead on an ambitious arts project, following funding from Creative Scotland’s Culture Collective Fund.
Govanhill Baths has a unique history of working collectively to inspire social change, with art and creativity at the heart of our approach. This new role comes at an exciting time for Govanhill Baths as 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of the community occupation of the Govanhill Baths building, the longest occupation of a public building in British history and what led to the creation of Govanhill Baths Community Trust.
The re-opening of the Govanhill Baths building as a community-led Wellbeing Centre is due to take place in Summer 2022 following major capital redevelopment. Creativity and art play a key role in the vision for the Centre.
Throughout 2021-2022 we will work with local community groups, artists, archivists, activists and arts organisations, to celebrate this monumental achievement. The theme ‘Occupy’ will be used to provide a rich framework for the overall project, highlighting what can be achieved through community activism and solidarity.
Creative Scotland’s Culture Collective Fund is a new pilot programme which will establish a network of creative practitioners, organisations and communities, working together to create a positive difference locally and nationally in response to COVID-19.
