We're 50


Public Programme Assistant / Freelance

Camden Arts Centre is an internationally-renowned contemporary art venue with an ambitious programme characterised by discovery and risk-taking. We excel in projects that empower and engage communities, inspire children and young people and deliver a critically acclaimed combination of exhibitions, artists’ projects and educational activity. In 2015-16 we celebrate our 50th birthday. To mark the anniversary, we will be developing a exciting programme of activities over the year that speaks to the core values of our programme over the past 50 years.

These include:
- Launching a digital archive of the last 25 years, presenting online for the first time images, texts and multimedia materials detailing our activity and picking up on recurring themes and media from the programme over the years.
- A nine month project working with volunteers and our new Youth Collective who will be interacting with and making our physical archive more accessible through new participant-led digital content.
- A Summer Takeover in September, throwing open the studio doors to let people of all ages experience activities from our artist-led education programme.

Alongside this will be a lecture series that looks back on the important role public institutions such as Camden Arts Centre have played in making art accessible for everyone, fostering careers of artists and showcasing challenging work, all of which have underpinned the ethos of Camden’s programme over the last 50 years. The talks will reflect on how organisations can build sustainable cultures of change that continue to give prominence and nurture under-represented and emerging artists at a time when funding is becoming increasingly limited. The programme will invite back artists, curators and critics who have engaged with Camden Arts Centre through its history.
