Studio/Lab Producer (Technology), FACT

FACT Liverpool is looking for a candidate with excellent technical skills, a keen willingness to learn and be excited about working with artists: supporting them to develop new work and helping to equip them with the skills necessary to navigate working within digital art.

This is an opportunity for an arts-focused technical producer to support FACT Liverpool’s new Studio/Lab programme and space. Working with the Studio/Lab Manager and another part-time Producer focused on Artist Development, they will help to support a growing community of artists to explore the possibilities of digital art.

This is the perfect chance to understand how technical roles within artist-centred organisations work and to have significant input into the launch and strategic development of a new digitally-focused project.
