Would you like to make a difference for refugees living in Scotland?

Scottish Refugee Council is an independent human rights charity that has been supporting and advocating for the rights of refugees since 1985. Our work involves the provision of services and support to refugees, advocating and campaigning for change and improvements to legislation and policy in Scotland and the UK and supporting the integration of refugees into society.

We are looking for a creative and highly organised Programme Coordinator to work closely with our Arts and Cultural Development Officer in all aspects of planning and delivering a wide range of projects and activity. Cross Borders is a programme of arts and cultural activism, mentoring, commissioned projects and collaborations for and with artists, activists and cultural practitioners from refugee and other migrant backgrounds. The Programme Coordinator will support effective administration, network support, create regular content and resources and regularly update digital and social media platforms, including a new website.

Through our arts and culture work, we advocate for the cultural rights of refugees and asylum seekers, where the right to creative expression, the right to participate in cultural life and the right to earn a living from artistic and cultural pursuits is widely recognised and supported across society. We work to support activists, artists and cultural practitioners with lived experience of seeking refugee protection, and who explore narratives of refugee-hood, migration and identity. We do this through listening, nurturing development, visibility and representation and collaborating and facilitating connections across the arts and culture sector in Scotland.
