Vacancy: Visual artist / designer / photographer – Ad Infinitum

11th September 2020, Part time , Paid (£30k-40k pro rata).

Description: Ad Infinitum is inviting applications from artists to collaborate on our latest project exploring the elderly care system in the UK. We’re looking for a visual artist / designer / photographer.

As part of Ad Infinitum’s lockdown activities, we’ve been gathering personal stories from people across the country of their experiences of the elderly care system in the UK. We have spent hours chatting with people whose relatives have received care at home or lived in a care home, hearing from those that struggled with the system or found it helpful, and people who work in the system. With permission we have recorded these conversations and we are looking for a visual artist to create a response to this material.

We’re looking for a talented visual artist, designer or photographer to create a visual response to the sound recordings generated so far, and reflect on the personal stories that have been shared with us. We’re open to any media or form that gives a further richness to the and sound recordings, and enables people to empathetically engage with the stories through a visual experience. We have no preconceived idea of what may be delivered and would love to hear exciting, accessible and compassionate ideas that can bring deeply personal experiences of ageing and elderly care to the widest possible audience. For this role no particular experience is required and we’d love to hear from collaborative creatives who are inspired by the power of personal testimony.

People of all ages, backgrounds and disciplines are welcome to apply and we’d love to work with Bristol-based creatives. We are particularly interested in applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, and disabled candidates. We are committed to creating a more diverse workforce and will work with our chosen collaborators to provide any access support or working arrangements that are required for them to deliver their best work.

More information about the role and how to apply is on our website.

Emma Macnair

Deadline for applications is Friday 11th September at 5pm.
