British Ceramics Biennial: Artistic Director/CEO required

The British Ceramics Biennial (BCB) is a prestigious and high profile festival of contemporary ceramics that takes place in Stoke-on-Trent. BCB presents art-works from the UK’s leading ceramicists alongside work by international artists, in exhibitions and special events held across the city. BCB is also responsible for delivery of an exciting year-round programme of artists’ commissions, education and community engagement projects. These projects feed into the festival programme of exhibitions and events.

The BCB works in collaboration with partners across the city in cultural, heritage, education, health and community sectors in the development and delivery of ground- breaking programmes that support Stoke-on-Trent’s cultural regeneration strategies.

The British Ceramics Biennial co-founder and Artistic Director, Barney Hare Duke has decided to stand down after a successful 12 years in the role. British Ceramics Biennial now seeks to appoint a new Artistic Director, CEO, to join the organisation and lead on the development of its artistic programme and further establish the organisation in Stoke-on-Trent and beyond.

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious, dynamic and imaginative individual to take one of the UK’s leading ceramics organisations forward into the next phase of its development, and to take an active strategic role in shaping its artistic future.

The candidate may be an artist, curator or other creative leader in the contemporary arts sector with a collaborative approach to working. With a commitment to working on a local, national and international level they will have strong networks in the UK; a proven interest in contemporary visual arts, with an interest/specialism in ceramics; experience of strategic planning and running an organisation.
