Islington Mill Arts Club is a well-established artist-led CIC providing affordable studio, venue and educational provision for the culture sector from its former textile mill in Salford.

Building on its 18 years of experience as a cultural catalyst and home for imaginative freedom IMAC is now establishing a charity, Islington Mill Foundation, to lead existing creative and learning programmes, and to grow new projects that will impact positively on the cultural and social landscape of the City and the region.

Major renovation work is currently underway to restore, develop and make accessible the historic Mill for this new phase of its creative life.  Renovated, the building will house the developing Islington Mill Art Academy, as well as it’s growing events, projects and programmes that will further embed the Mill as a cultural driver in both the history and future of the area.

This is an exciting point in Islington Mill’s history. With a new organisational structure, business plan, and capital and project funding in place from both The National Lottery Heritage Fund and Arts Council England, it is ready to embark on its next, exciting and most ambitious phase yet. The Mill is now seeking a Projects Coordinator to work with the Mill’s small dedicated team to build on this potential.

The Projects Coordinator will play a lead role in the successful delivery of Mill programmes, monitoring and evaluation and the development of new audiences. This involves liaising with artists, staff, partners, audiences and our communities to produce high quality projects and programmes, as varied as weekend multi-programme festival events, educational outreach projects and potluck dinner socials.

We are looking for someone who enjoys engaging with people, is curious and thrives on co-creating solutions. Someone who doesn’t take positions of superiority or inferiority, who remains super calm when much is happening fast, is clued into the overall vision, mission and values, and loves getting things done in a way that furthers the raison d’etre, in a creatively diverse experimental environment.
