Artcore Associates Callout – Join Artcore’s Associates Pool

Artcore is a dynamic and developing Contemporary Visual Arts organisation with two bases in Derby. Artcore delivers 10 exhibitions & 4 artist residencies annually, with a vibrant workshop and participation programme and projects engaging with the communities of Derby. Established in 1995, Artcore moved to Derby in 2005, became a registered charity in 2012 and an Arts Council England NPO in 2018/19.

Becoming part of the Artcore Associates would give creatives an opportunity to approach Artcore to help them realise a project or initiative that is still in the ideation or developmental stage. Co-production is way to build your creative practice as well as further your relationship with us and gain access to our networks within the creative industry. We are interested in seeing ideas that align with our values and ethos.

Artcore wants to expand and diversify our pool of associates, and are you a creative person with a wide range of skills – artists, curator, makers, workshop leaders, project managers, exhibition technicians, designers, art administrator and probably a few other things we haven’t thought of yet.
