Your experience will enable you to work collaboratively with other members of the School Management Team to lead and support the wider strategic activities of the School and the University in terms of portfolio development, recruitment and research. As an educator, you will have a passion for the development and enhancement of fine art education, and enthusiasm for tradition, innovation, interdisciplinary and collaborative practices, as well as a critical understanding of the social, cultural, economic and environmental factors for artists, art and art education, including decolonising practices, mental health and wellbeing, diversity, inclusion and LGBTQIA+.
