Do you want to build your work experience in the largest contemporary crafts organisation in the South West? Devon Guild of Craftsmen is offering marketing internships this summer running from July to September.
They are looking for lively individuals with an interest in people to assist with market research, conducting face-to-face interviews with our visitors at Riverside Mill in Bovey Tracey.
There will be a training day and staff support to get you started. This voluntary, part-time role will include inputting data and working with our office and marketing staff to build on recent research and develop a better picture of our current audience.
Successful candidates will also have the opportunity to: gain experience of other aspects of arts marketing; develop insight into the running of a gallery and visitor attraction; practice and develop marketing and administrative skills; and apply your experience to career-related skills and interests.
Candidates must be IT literate and confident in dealing with the public. This is a voluntary (unpaid) post and hours are negotiable.
The bods at the Guild can offer reimbursement for travel expenses, but you will arrange your own transport to Bovey Tracey.
If you’re interested, in the first instance, drop ’em an email by June 20 to firstname.lastname@example.org with a short statement about why you are interested in this opportunity at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen (max 250 words) plus your current CV.
Look and definitely touch is the theme of the exhibition Tall Stories, currently running at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, Bovey Tracey. Based in a bright, whitewashed room within the old mill building, visitors are encouraged to play (carefully!) with the collection of automata and kinetic sculptures and discover the stories they have to tell.
The exhibition is called Tall Stories, but it could equally go by the name Moving Stories, what with all the motions stimulating emotions at The Devon Guild of Craftsmen in Bovey Tracey with its new exploration of storytelling through automata.
A review day is on offer for craft practitioners who have practiced their craft in the South West for more than seven years. It takes place at the Devon Guild of Craftsmen on Wednesday, April 22 from 10am to 5.30pm and cost £15.
