We’re Recruiting: Curator of Visual Arts

Project Arts Centre is beginning the search for a new Curator for our Visual Arts Programme.

This is an exciting opportunity for a dynamic and highly-skilled individual to join the team at one of Ireland’s leading cultural organisations.

Project Arts Centre is more than a venue.  Built around a community of artists, audiences, members, staff, Board and other stakeholders, it is:

  • A home for contemporary arts
  • A producing house
  • An artist resource
  • A critical hub

Reporting to the Artistic Director and General Manager, but working autonomously, The Curator of Visual Arts (Curator) is a key position at Project with responsibility for leading on the vision for and delivery of the organisation’s visual arts programme.

The Curator is responsible for developing, delivering and managing the visual arts programme in keeping with the vision of Project Arts Centre. We are looking for a Curator who is passionate about making a real impact on the Irish and international scene. PAC is open to new ways of working, new forms of curatorial practice and time-based project proposals.
