Producer Opportunity at Public Art Resource and Research
Creativity Portal - User Interface Designer

Producer Opportunity at Public Art Resource and Research

The Scottish Arts Council is looking for an experienced organisation or individual to produce Public Art Resource and Research (PAR+RS). The Producer will promote public art nationally, undertake research, commission new writing and artwork and develop content for the Public Art Scotland website (www.publicartscotland.com).

PAR+RS grew from a range of research and consultation processes, which have fore-grounded: concerns for greater visibility of past and current public art projects; the need for wider forms of participation and critical engagement; the desire for those involved to influence policy and funding development.

In the 12 month period up to March 24 2010, the Public Art Scotland website attracted over 15,000 visitors, from 130 countries with 72% of visits from UK, 9% from US and Germany, Canada and Ireland making up most of the remaining visits.

The budget / fee available for this contract is £14,250 for 12 months including VAT, if applicable. This fee is for a fixed 12 month contract based on 2 full days (8 hours per day) per week for 52 weeks with an additional 10 days to cover any additional workload.

Deadline for submission of tenders: 12 noon, Thursday 17 June 2010
Interview date: Wednesday 23 June 2010

For tender information email Sarah Smith, Lottery Officer.
