Glasgow Connected Arts Network improves health, wellbeing and future prospects within the city by supporting a strong, capable and confident participatory arts sector.

Job Purpose: To lead on the delivery of Creative Glasgow’s Youth Arts Programme. The Youth Arts Coordinator will coordinate the planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluating all Creative Glasgow youth arts activity and to represent The Bold Collective (Creative Glasgow’s youth arts committee) and Creative Glasgow at a local and national level.

The Coordinator will support and grow The Bold Collective, run youth-led events, projects and provide training and placement opportunities.

Key Aims: Community, Professional Development, Sustainability.
The Bold Collective is a forward-thinking committee dedicated to amplifying the voices of young artists and providing them with the resources and support they need to thrive. Through our diverse range of initiatives we strive to create inclusive spaces where creativity flourishes and artistic aspirations soar.
As the Youth Arts Coordinator, you will play a pivotal role by providing young people with opportunities to showcase their work, connect with peers, and be inspired by established artists. You will coordinate mentoring, offer guidance on career progression, and facilitate pathways into the arts for aspiring talents from diverse backgrounds.

Glasgow Connected Arts Network aims to: 

  • Promote and nurture supportive and mutually beneficial partnerships and collaboration
  • Provide practical support and information to allow the sector to develop excellent practice
  • Support the development of participatory arts programmes in areas where they are most needed
  • Represent and advocate for the value, needs and rights of the artistic community at a strategic level
  • Provide routes for disadvantaged young people to develop careers in the creative industries

Underpinning these aims are our three values of Diverse Representation, Accessibility and Connection.

We support work which celebrates our differences, promotes equality and improves access to the arts for marginalised groups. We support work which extends the reach of Artists and Organisations to communities that do not have adequate access to the arts with a focus on sharing learning with others and working together. We will develop guidelines, share learning and reach communities where there is low provision of creative activities. We seek to bring people together to promote and develop Participatory Arts programmes. We actively support Artists and Organisations to work with each other and communities through partnership initiatives.

Glasgow Connected Arts Network is a committed equal opportunities employer. We welcome applications from those who are significantly underrepresented in the sector.
