Cork Printmakers seeks a Project Manager to lead the co-ordination of a programme of activity for In from the Margins – a Creative Europe Co-operative Project forming the first Studios of Sanctuary network across Europe. The programme will support artists from refugee, migrant and displaced backgrounds in five print making studios across Europe, including: Cork Printmakers; Edinburgh Printmakers; Amsterdams Grafisch Atelier; International Centre for Graphic Arts Ljubljana; and Funen Print Making Studio Odense.

The project will include planning, preparing and hosting six open call artist residencies at Cork Printmakers this Summer 2022. Each residency runs for one month and they will run concurrently. Each artist is invited to create an artwork for exhibition, which will take place in Edinburgh Printmakers Gallery in April 2023. Additionally, each residency will incorporate a community outreach element, which will be led by the Project Manager and may or may not involve the artist, depending on their circumstances.
As an employee of Cork Printmakers you will be supported in your role by the studio team, project selection panel and project partners; you will act as a representative of the studio on all In from the Margins activities to stakeholders, while also assessing and managing the needs of participating artists on an ongoing basis.

The role is based primarily at Cork Printmakers studios on Wandesford Quay in Cork City however remote working will be considered for this role.
