Mimosa House is a young and independent, non-profit art space in central London, dedicated to supporting experimentation, collaboration, and dialogue between intergenerational female and queer artists, and their audiences. Our aim is to create a safe and empowering space which embraces inclusivity and sensitivity, the fluidity of identity and the need for change. After three years of programming, we are entering an important new phase of our institutional growth, as we move to a more permanent and accessible building in Holborn, and begin to expand our artistic programme to wider audiences, both physically and digitally.
We are now looking for a skilled and dynamic person who is passionate about social art practice and community building to work with us as a Community Engagement Curator. The role will build on our existing partnerships with community-focused organisations, as well as developing innovative methods of reaching new audiences within the context of social distancing. In doing this, we are particularly keen to create spaces which centre local women and queer people, and particularly BPOC* women and queer people.
Together we want to explore pioneering models for how an arts space can operate inclusively and collaboratively within a diverse local community, and engage audiences who would be otherwise less likely to visit a contemporary arts space. In addition to producing a long-term engagement strategy, the Community Engagement Curator will therefore lead on co-devising and producing creative, participatory projects with these groups, to forge lasting relationships within and around the gallery.
