Arran Theatre and Arts Trust are recruiting

Arran Theatre and Arts Trust are looking for three project workers to help develop a new Arts Heritage Trail for the island. This is an exciting opportunity to be part of a new project that aims to celebrate the many artists who have lived or visited Arran and been inspired by the island. There are more details below, with links to the three different roles and how to apply. One of the deadlines, for Researcher, has just passed, but there is still time for the other two positions of Project Manager and Facilitator.

The Isle of Arran has a rich arts heritage which we believe deserves to be celebrated and documented. To do this, Arran Theatre and Arts Trust are establishing an island wide Arts Heritage Trail. The trail will be an interactive way for visitors to travel around the island and visit locations where artists have painted landscapes of Arran. It will involve the creation of an archive, and will consist of physical placemarkers, a dedicated website and accompanying leaflet. The trail will for the first time make it possible for locals and visitors to visit, learn about and appreciate the locations which have inspired so many important artists. It will be a tourism draw, an educational tool, and an opportunity for the community to come together and learn new skills. The new Arts Heritage Trail will also complement the existing Arran Arts Trail which showcases and celebrates existing artists on Arran.

For any questions or queries about the roles and the project, please contact Eileen Kerr on arrantheatreandarts@gmail.com.
