About the Herbert

Work at the Museum...

The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum is part of the Culture Coventry charitable trust. Occasionally we need to recruit new staff to the team, and we look for self-motivated and forward-thinking people. Even if you are based behind the scenes, you need to be comfortable working with or around visitors in an environment where creating the right atmosphere is everything. Everyone in the team plays an active part in delivering our fantastic attraction to visitors.

All of our vacancies can be found listed here when they arise, but if you can’t wait to get involved why not click here to see our Volunteering Programme.

People from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds, disabled, deaf and neurodivergent people are underrepresented in our workforce, so we particularly encourage applications from candidates in these groups.

Explorers Artist Residency

Closing date: 9am, Monday 20th June 2022

Project Art Works is working with Outside In to offer three artist residencies for neurodivergent artists through its Explorers Project. One residency will be hosted by the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, and two residencies will be hosted by The New Art Gallery Walsall.

This opportunity will support three artists who are neurodivergent to develop work over 5-weeks with the support and guidance from both participating organisations and a virtual or studio visit from a lead artist.

The successful artists will receive:

  • £1475 fee (inclusive of travel)
  • Up to £300 for materials
  • In-kind support (virtual or in person studio visits and curatorial guidance, advocacy and a presence across Outside In, The New Art Gallery Walsall and The Herbert Art Gallery online platforms as well as shared through the Explorers social media presence)
  • Access to remote technical advice, as appropriate
  • Access to a lead artist for 1 x visit
  • Additional budget for access costs including support at our Artist Support Days for guidance on your application

This opportunity is open to visual artists who are neurodivergent, working in any medium, who are based in the Midlands. We would like to select artists who either are able to advocate for themselves, or have a person who can support and advocate for them to:

  • Actively engage in developing their practice with a demonstrable existing body of work
  • Generate work that can be shared and/or made accessible to a virtual audience
  • Commit time to the project each week over a 5-week period
  • Accommodate a lead artist virtual or studio visit
  • Be happy for artwork made to be shared on all partner websites to show the outcome of the residency

Applicants should not be in full-time education, but part-time students are welcome to apply.

Please download the application form

Artists, or the person that supports and advocates for them can submit in different formats, including audio or film.
