In 2008 Cornwall Council’s Creative Unit presented Arts Council England with a detailed proposal for a new community based art programme in Cornwall. Arts Council England accepted the plan and FEAST began operating.
FEAST invests in community and artist led projects and events that break new ground. We want excellent content and inventive thinking about how to involve different and new people.
FEAST wants to have a lasting effect. It encourages ideas, skills and resource sharing so that communities are left better equipped to carry on the good work.
To achieve a genuine change, which really does bring the arts home to communities, we need new ideas. FEAST wants to draw on the best ideas from the best people across Cornwall. That is why we have an open application process.
We also help artists and communities to develop their ideas.
In addition, FEAST works to take the arts into new areas by building partnerships with organisations that deliver on mainstream agendas.
FEAST joins up artists, projects and communities across the programme to make the whole more than the sum of its parts.
We are Recruiting!
We are seeking an Administrator to provide support for the FEAST team. You will be joining a small team which prides itself on bringing together artists and communities to open up new creative opportunities for the broadest possible range of people.
FEAST commissions around 80 projects a year and is involved in a number of partner programmes. The administration of such a wide portfolio of activities needs to be accurate and systematic; communication with applicants and FEAST projects must be well handled and the whole team need to understand and champion the value of the work. We are looking for someone bright, enthusiastic and organised who would enjoy the dynamic of a small team bent on making things happen. Download the Job Description and Application Form here.
