Dumfries and Galloway College is looking to recruit artists to teach art and design courses in the Dumfries and Stranraer Campuses.
Deadline for applications: 8th December.
Since our revised constitution was adopted at our recent AGM, we now have four spaces on the Board of DG Unlimited. Whilst wanting to ensure we still have a fair geographical spread across the region, we are also looking for a keen interest in the arts and specific skills/experience in various areas, including: funding; finance; equalities; communications; and youth.
Board meetings are held approximately every six weeks in venues across the region. If you feel you would be able to commit the time and can offer your skills, we’d love to hear from you.
Please complete and submit the Trustee Nomination Form to Rebecca Giblin on email@example.com by 12noon on Tuesday 28th November.
Should there be more applications than we have spaces, then an election will take place and members will be duly informed of the voting procedure.

The managing committee of the Proudfoot Institute, located in central Moffat, has kindly offered a room for arts use at a very reasonable rate for an initial trial period of 6 months. It makes an ideal studio being spacious and well lit.
It can comfortably accommodate 4-5 people simultaneously together with their equipment etc. For four people the cost would be £25 p.m. each and this includes access to running water and toilet facilities. The space would suit most types of art making, excepting work that involves machinery and loud noise.
If you know of anyone who is looking for studio space then please do get in touch with Robert Stace of Moffat Art Collective on firstname.lastname@example.org
