EVS in Austria at the Rotor – Association for contemporary art. Application deadline is 3 January 2013.

November 11, 2012 | In: , , ,

The ROTOR cultural association in Graz, Austria, 2011-AT-7, is looking for two volunteers starting at 2 September 2013 for the duration of 12 months.

Project Environment: Graz is the second largest city of Austria with about 250.000 inhabitants. It is located in the southeast of the country, 50 kilometres away from the border of Slovenia, and some 100 kilometres away from Hungary. Having three universities, many young people live in Graz. The city offers a wide range of interesting cultural, social, and sportive day and night activities. Especially in the field of culture, Graz has a lot to offer. In 2003, Graz was the Cultural Capital of Europe, and it is well known for its historical centre, which has become part of the UNESCO Cultural World Heritage. But Graz is also known for its modern architecture, and its diverse cultural institutions.

ROTOR is an association for contemporary art based in Graz, Austria, and was founded in 1999. Most of the association’s activities take place in Graz but it participates in, organises or co-organises projects in Styria, Austria and many other European countries. There is also a particularly strong linkage to the Southeast European area.

The main fields of activity of ROTOR are:
– conceiving and organising exhibitions (in our own space and in others)
artistic interventions in public space
Artist-in-Residence programmes (inviting artists from other countries to spend some time in Graz, and enabling Austrian artists to spend time abroad).
– publishing books
– organising conferences and lectures
– organising a monthly artist meetings to support the networks of the local scene
– keeping and expanding an archive about artists from Austria & Southeastern Europe.

Tasks: The volunteers will work in the exhibition room where they are the first person one meets when entering  and they will as well work with the back office team. The volunteers support us in all our projects, for example by:
– taking over small organisatorical parts of bigger projects (i.e. communicating with artists and organisations, doing researches, booking travels/accomodation, …)
– helping to set up exhibitions (not only hanging up pictures, but also preparing installations, setting up videoworks,…)
– giving information to visitors
– helping to keep our webpages updated
– supporting the team in all kinds of daily tasks
– attending to our archive.

Selection procedure: The volunteer should be a committed person, able to work autonomously (of course supported by the mentor and the team in each stage of the project) and be open and interested in art, society, and communication.  You need to send your application/CV and SPECIFIC letter of motivation until 03/01/2013. There you need to express among others what appeals to you in this project and why you want to participate exactly in this project. Only applications with SPECIFIC letters of motivation will be considered.
