Unlimited is a program which funds high quality, extraordinary art by disabled artists, based in the United Kingdom. As part of Unlimited’s international remit and commitment to skills development, we are partnering with the British Council to offer a professional placement to a disabled person based outside of the UK who is working, or beginning to work, as an arts producer, arts curator or arts administrator.
The placement aims to promote the next generation of arts leaders ensuring disabled people are trained, supported and advanced as cultural professionals.
This is a unique professional development opportunity, offering a hands-on experience of the delivery of Unlimited as a commissioning and funding program.
The placement will take place alongside Southbank Centre’s Unlimited Festival in London in September 2020, joining the Unlimited team in the delivery of many activities over that period. The placement period will be shaped and adapted to meet the needs of the person selected. This could mean several short trips to the UK January 2020 – October 2020, or one longer trip depending which is most suitable.
This is an opportunity for someone that already works in the arts in their country of residence who will be able to apply the learning from this opportunity to the work they do at home. The placement offers a chance to develop leadership skills. This will be done through shadowing disabled leaders connected to Unlimited, learning from others (‘peer learning’) and through the experience of working directly on a wide range of aspects relating to the program delivery.
It is also an opportunity for Unlimited to expand its reach and networks, to learn more about how things work in different countries and to gain a valuable addition to its delivery team during a busy period in 2020.
