SCREW GALLERY ASSISTANT SKILL SHARE
We’re looking for a few volunteers to help out with basic tasks at the gallery over the course of 2023 on a skill-share basis. Volunteers will be expected to make a commitment of 3 months to support the gallery for five hours a week. Tasks are primarily going to consist of invigilation and install assistance but could also extend to experience in marketing, curation, PR etc.
In exchange we can offer an equal return in support hours as a skill-share. This opportunity particularly suits students or those with flexible employment who are looking to gain experience in the running of artist-led organisations as well as grass roots curatorial programming. Our team of directors have exhibited worldwide, contributed to major publications and undertaken a variety of residencies, commissions and successful grant applications aside from our work with SCREW and are happy to share our experiences with willing participants.
Examples of what we can offer in terms of skill sharing would include help with postgraduate applications, residency applications, invoicing, freelance contacts and support, funding applications locally and nationally as well as any practical skills you may observe and want to learn - from painting and printmaking to photography, animation or sound design.
SCREW U is a regular opportunity for you to use our gallery space to realise your own ideas. Set over a weekend, we provide the gallery free of charge for exhibitions, workshops, pop-ups and anything else that you think might fit with our space and ethos.
To be considered for SCREW U, email us a proposal outlining your idea, timeline etc. If you need help with a proposal or would like to talk to us before submitting something, you're always welcome to send an email or drop by the gallery in person during opening hours.
The proposal should outline your project, timeline and preferred month. The weekends are allocated and not flexible, so it’s best to consider projects which aren’t time sensitive.
Before contacting us, please take a look at our programme and the artists who coordinate the space. Think about whether your idea fits with what we do and how executing it at SCREW could benefit you, as well as the city of Leeds. We look forward to hearing from you.
