What kinds of visual art do you support?

We focus on supporting contemporary visual art. If you can print some part of the work – we call it visual art. For example, painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, moving image, installation, theatre, performing arts, and any other media or documentation that can be printed.

What is an early-career creative?

Our opportunities are aimed at anyone who wants to gain experience working in contemporary art. We support the development of early-career creatives such as artists, curators, producers, photographers, filmmakers, and critics. When choosing creatives to work with us, we select people who we think will benefit from working with us.

Where do you work in the East Midlands?

We work across our region, the East Midlands. No Jobs in the Arts supports emerging creatives linked to the East Midlands. For example, those who live, study, or work here. The East Midlands region includes:

Derby / Derbyshire
Lincoln / Lincolnshire

How do you work with early-career creatives?

We create opportunities for early-career arts professionals looking to gain experience in the visual arts; we deliver a public program of print media and digital activities. No Jobs in the Arts started as a print publication in 2018 to showcase creative practices. Since then, we’ve expanded our creative programme to also include workshops, commissions, internships, interviews, talks, exhibitions, and recently a festivals.

Why do you deliver your program?

We want to help people to gain entry-level experience in the arts. Through our projects, artists and creatives gain skills and experiences relevant to working in the visual arts. We partner our projects with local creative organisations to create links and share resources.
