North Light Arts is looking for someone with a background in either arts, community engagement or social research to assist with designing and implementing a creative monitoring and evaluation process to capture the ideas, data and impact of the John Muir art fellowship.

The art fellowship – Is Soil Alive? – is funded by Creative Scotland and is a participatory arts project, led by artist Natalie Taylor, exploring our connection with soil in creative ways and through artistic practice with community and wider public engagement.

Throughout the fellowship we aim for participants to help steer the direction and progression of the work so it has significance to the people participating and a wider audience.

Main tasks:

The successful applicant will work to come up with creative methods that NLA can use to monitor and evaluate the impact and outcomes of the project, as well as capturing the ideas and voices of those engaged through the project to inform future processes and activity.

  • Effective writing and communication skills;
  • Excellent skills in working both independently and in a team;
  • Good time management,
  • Systematic approach and attention to detail.
