Engage wishes to commission a Conference Programmer to develop the concept for the Engage international conference 2019, and to programme this important annual event.

The Programmer will work closely with the Engage Director, Engage staff and members in the North East in developing their ideas for the conference, and will have agreed the main shape of the programme and the majority of contributors by late June 2019. Engage staff will work with the Programmer on the practical planning of the event; dealing with logistics, including liaising with contributors, and bookings of venues, catering, transport, etc.

This is an opportunity to play a key role alongside an enthusiastic team in a national visual arts education organisation, programming a major annual event, which brings together c.180 arts and education professionals from the United Kingdom and overseas.

Engage is the lead advocacy and training network for gallery education, with over 870 members in the UK and internationally across c.270 visual arts organisations. For more information see: www.engage.org
