Dairy Art Centre’s newly established education programme, developed alongside exhibitions, aims to increase access to visual arts, develop emerging art professionals, and provide a dedicated space as a local resource for families and the local community to learn more about contemporary visual art.
Dairy Art Centre’s new Internship Programme has been initiated to aid career development. The scheme provides a graduate or early career professional training and support in arts administration, exhibition making and gallery operations. This is an exciting opportunity for an integral member of the team who is involved in all aspects of the Centre. Each internship is paid and provides full time work at Dairy Art Centre for five months.
We will be recruiting for our next intern in January for a February 2015 start. Please note, applications submitted before the post is officially advertised will not be considered. Details of how to apply will be posted here next year.
Our Family Days and workshops serve to develop our growing reputation as a valued institution for contemporary visual art and enable us to extend our audience, beyond the art going regulars, to attract new audiences. Family Days are led by artists who are early in their career to provide them with the crucial first steps of working as a professional visual artist.
Through our Exhibition Tours, our dedicated team of volunteers conduct their own research of artists' practices to gain a deeper understanding of the exhibitions and impart their knowledge of the exhibitions to engage and offer visitors a unique gallery-going experience. Tours are free and take place every Thursday at 1:30PM and every Saturday and Sunday at 3PM.
Volunteers are encouraged to participate in the programme for at least one regular day per week during exhibitions. Expenses are paid. If you would like to volunteer during Yoshitomo Nara’s exhibition, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
As with the exhibitions programme, the education programme will underscore the vision of Dairy Art Centre to become an inviting place where people want to be and where they can explore, discuss and have fun.
