Artist Residency @Kelvin Hall


Kelvin Hall is looking for an artist working with moving image/film or a documentary maker to work with the Kelvin Hall heritage partnership staff team.  The successful artist will use their practice to create several shorts which would offer building Sports users the opportunity to learn about the collections held in storage within Kelvin Hall.

A building tour and overview session, which would explain what we are looking for prior to application, will be held at Kelvin Hall on Friday 2 December 2016 between 2 – 3.30pm.  It is not compulsory to attend this session.  Applications would be expected by Friday 9 December 2016.

Glasgow Life is committed to ensuring that all sections of the community, regardless of protected characteristic, can have fair and equal access to the range of services and employment opportunities provided by the company.  Applications are therefore actively encouraged from all diverse backgrounds.
