We have five vacancies for artists or creative practitioners to help deliver an exciting new arts programme as part of the national Culture Collective project of Creative Scotland!
In response to the ravaging effect that COVID-19 has had on the creative sector, Govanhill Baths Community Trust (GBCT) will provide stable PAYE employment to five artists for 12 months to embed them within the Govanhill community. Each of the artists will be paired with a community group, to co-design and co-create an artistic programme of work over the course of a year, as part of GBCT’s Occupy, Create, Resist! Programme.
Govanhill Baths has a unique history of working collectively to inspire social change, with art and creativity at the heart of our approach. These new roles come at an exciting time for Govanhill Baths. 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.
The closing date for applications is Monday 7th of June.
