Playing the Race Card is looking for an experienced, enthusiastic and highly organised individual to manage and coordinate the Playing the Race Card Exhibition and deliver wraparound activities.

About Playing the Race Card

Playing the Race Card (PTRC) is a community project based in St Leonards created and led by local resident Claudine Eccleston in response to her own experiences. 

During the lockdown PTRC launched a call-out to UK artists who identify as black to submit artworks responding to perceptions or experiences relating to the concept of the race card.

The submitted works were displayed in an online gallery which will be the content for this new physical exhibition in the Big Yin Gallery, St Leonards.

A Working Group of local residents meet regularly to guide, shape and support the project.  

PTRC is part of Good Stuff in St Leonards, a creative programme of activities and events led by local residents supported by arts charity Home Live Art.

More about the role

This role will suit a motivated project manager who enjoys team working and appreciates the value of diversity in the arts and wants to increase this.

The role includes coordinating the Exhibition as well as supporting the delivery of wraparound activities including talks, social events and artist commissions; all of which centre the work of Black artists & artists of colour. The successful candidate must therefore have an understanding of the lived experiences of Black people and/or people of colour.

While the project is based in hastings, we are open to receiving applications from those living elsewhere who are able to work in a hybrid way – remote with some location work in Hastings.
