We have two new exciting opportunities to work with Kettle’s Yard’s learning team. See below for the details.

Film-maker/Facilitator

Kettle’s Yard is looking for a freelance film-maker/facilitator to collaborate with a class of year 9 students to create a film about our upcoming exhibition: UNTITLED: Art on the conditions of our times.

What is the project?

Kettle’s Yard is working with a year 9 class from North Cambridge Academy to explore the themes and artists of the UNTITLED exhibition and produce a film (approx. five minutes) to share their responses with a wider audience.

What will the film maker/facilitator do?

The film maker/facilitator will lead a half-day workshop introducing the students to the key elements of film making. This will equip the students to feed in to the creative decisions around the direction and editing of the film. The filmmaker and students will collaboratively develop a brief for the film, and the film maker will then follow the brief to execute the film. This could cover both the filming and editing, or be delivered in partnership with an editor.

How to apply

Please send a CV and cover letter explaining why you’d like the role and how you meet the person specification to learning@kettlesyard.cam.ac.uk by the end of Sunday 3 January. Please include links to 3 x 5 minute examples of your work.

You may also submit a video application instead of a cover letter. We won’t be assessing the film quality of this video.

Interviews will take place via zoom between 6 -8 January.

Artist Facilitator

Kettle’s Yard is looking for a freelance artist facilitator to take a lead role in delivering the second phase of Story Space, a visual arts project supporting literacy in early years families, based in North Cambridge.

What is Story Space?

Story Space is a partnership between family support charity The Red Hen Project, Cambridgeshire County Council’s early years literacy, language and communication programme Talking Together in Cambridgeshire, and Kettle’s Yard.

Phase 1 of the Story Space project runs from January-March 2021, and includes home deliveries of book packs, online resources and a local support network. Phase 2 of the project will consist of a series of art-based story sharing workshops in North East Cambridge with parents/carers and their young children (18 months – 4 years).

What will the artist facilitator do?

The artist facilitator will take the lead in planning and delivering the content of sessions, supported by the Kettle’s Yard learning team and the Red Hen Project worker. This will include researching the Sutapa Biswas exhibition and undertaking literacy, language and communication training led by Talking Together in Cambridgeshire. The artist facilitator will also develop content for the take-home book packs for the families.

Throughout the project, the artist facilitator will gather a visual record of the sessions, and draw on their art practice to collaborate with the families and the project team to turn these into a printed book. The artist facilitator will also be expected to contribute to the evaluation and reporting of the project.

How to apply

Please send a CV and cover letter explaining why you’d like the role and how you meet the person specification to learning@kettlesyard.cam.ac.uk by the end of Sunday 10 January. Please include links to examples of your work.

You may also submit a video application instead of a cover letter. We won’t be assessing the film quality of this video.
