Associates Positions Available for 2010
JamFactory is Australia's leading contemporary craft and design centre providing emerging craftspeople and designer/makers with unique professional and creative development opportunities.
JamFactory's two-year practical studio based program provides emerging craftspeople and designer-makers with professional and creative development opportunities unavailable anywhere else in Australia.
Participants in the scheme are referred to as "Associates" and work under guidance of experienced Creative Directors and Studio staff . Studios provide an environment in which Associates explore creative ideas and hone their technical and making skills while acquiring business and marketing expertise necessary to establish financially and culturally viable careers in craft and design.
Associates work alongside peers in developing production ideas and designs, creating one-off and exhibition work and participating in commissions. Associates have access to a full range of studio equipment. The Associate experience equips craft practitioners with the skills and understanding needed to underpin successful independent practice.
Associates are selected once a year from applicants received from all over Australia and the world with the aim of creating studio teams with a strong focus on development of ideas, creativity and making skills. Applicants will typically be high achieving tertiary graduates with visual art or design degrees, or emerging practitioners with demonstrated skills and abilities.
Associate positions for 2010 are available in the Ceramics, Furniture, Glass, and Metal Studios.
