Partners Unlimited
"This is art without a filter."

The Artist

partners Unlimited is deeply committed to supporting the artist in our programming. The artist is our "shop". We understand the value of investing in and employing quality artists. Professionalism, confidentiality, and respect for institutional staff, the participants and the administration is always exhibited. The artist is working in an environment that is very fragile in regards to meeting the needs of staff, the participants, the institution and the community. Art is powerful in transforming lives. Art can also be destructive to self worth if misused.

It is critical to the success of our programs to identify, train and employ artists that can meet these qualifications:

  • Working as a professional artist in music, visual arts, storytelling, theatre, creative writing, dance, film &/or video making, photography, architecture, landscape architecture, traditional cultural arts, or in multi-disciplinary arts
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Cultural sensitivity to cultural populations, staff and community environments
  • Work respectfully in restrictive environments
  • Flexibility
  • Ability to develop long-term programming with a culminating exhibit, presentation or performance of original work guided by the artist

SEEKING ARTISTS
