GRADJOB is a year-long collaboratively produced learning and professional development programme for recent graduates working across Scotland. Regrettably, GRADJOB emerged from a lack of support, exploitation, and precarious working conditions. It aims to offer support and inspiration to artists and organisers in the early stages of their career and who are in need of practical advice about how to survive, thrive, and develop their practice. GRADJOB celebrates learning how to: create opportunities, keep going, EAT LUNCH TOGETHER, write applications, MAKE TIME, build audiences, work collectively, make your own art world, SAY NO, juggle things, make friends, MESS IT UP, stay confident and grounded, find spaces, expand networks and be proactive!
Contribution so far: Ben Callaghan, Rhubaba Gallery Naomi Garriock, Basic Mountain, Katariina Yli-Malmi, Mutual Co-op, Daniel Twist, Jennie Temple, Gordon Douglas, Robert Mills, Lesley Young, Francis Dosoo, Jamie Crewe, Alex Martinis Roe
