Opportunities

1.) Exhibition Proposals

GENERATORprojects accepts proposals for exhibitions, art related projects and off-site events all year round.

The GENERATORcommittee will look over submitted proposals once every month. The accepted exhibitions, projects, off-site events etc are designed to be realised in collaboration with the GENERATORcommittee and become part of GENERATOR’s curated programme. Although we attempt to do so, the sheer number of applications means we may not be able to offer feedback on all unsuccessful proposals.

Submissions must include:
Cover Letter

Artists CV

Proposal of Project

Documentation: 6 images or 10mins max film documentation

GENERATORprojects_FLOORPLAN

Note: If you are looking for a space to carry out your project, or even engage in research and development, GENERATORprojects will be available for ‘takeover’ slots between our curated programme. Please see opportunity ‘General Use of White Spaces- GENERATORtake-over’

2.) The Collective Space and MEMBER-led Activity

Are you a GENERATORmember, do you have an idea you’d like to showcase & receive feedback on? Is there something you would like to produce in our Collective Space or off-site? The Collective Space can be used for events, screenings, workshops, small scale exhibitions, responsive works to the programmed exhibitions etc. Please contact the committee at mail@generatorprojects.co.uk if you would like to discuss your ideas for an event.

3.) General Use of White Spaces – GENERATOR take-over

Between programmed exhibitions the committee welcomes requests to use the two large white spaces for ‘take-over’ events and the development of work such as filming, documentation or trial installs. If you would like to make use of the white spaces at Generator Projects please send the committee an email. All requests will be dependent on the requirements of the programme schedule and it should be noted that there will be limited committee assistance during these periods. These slots are designed as artist led activity

Note: GENERATOR is in no way a funding body, but we can assist individuals in putting together an application for funding for an event or takeover within GENERATOR when given an ample time frame.

4.) GENERATORvolunteers

We welcome all members and local artists to help out where they can with the running of GENERATOR.

We are always on the look out for invigilators & individuals to help with the install of our next show. Whilst invigilating you can utilise our Mac which comes loaded with Photoshop & the Microsoft Office Package. This means whilst you invigilate, you can also get on with your own admin/ studies/ work if you need to. 

If you feel you can help GENERATOR, please do get in touch and let us know how you can help us – but also how we can help you develop the skills you require.

5.) GENERATORcommittee 

Working as a team, the Generator committee programmes events and exhibitions for the Generator membership, local community and wider audience. Committee members handle the administration of all areas of the organisations including curation, marketing and gallery outreach, events management and fundraising as well as the general running of the building.

The committee dedicates an average of 16 hours per week for 2 years and meet together once a week, though more frequently during busy periods such as exhibition install and when hosting events. The current committee members are Lynne McBride, Gentian Miekleham, Harriet McMillan, Andy Slater, Fergus Tibbs and Hayley Whelan. If you are interested in applying for the position of a committee member, please email a statement of interest and your CV to mail@generatorprojects.co.uk. This is a voluntary role and we encourage practising artists to apply. We unfortunately cannot accept applications from students.
