OPPORTUNITIES

We’re currently looking for three professionals or organisations to join our team and be part of the Observer Building redevelopment.

ARTIST FLOOR MANAGER – We’re recruiting a floor manager for the second floor artist studios*. This could be an individual or a collective of people. The role is to rent the 460 metres squared of raw space, fit it out and sublet to other artists in the town. For more information the role, the space and associated rents read this document.

DEADLINE 10 MAY

*The artists studios are a ‘meanwhile solution’, while we raise the money to create 16 capped rent flats on the 2nd and 3rd floor of the Observer Building. We know affordable homes are critically important for Hastings and we are committed to starting this work, likely in late 2021. We want to offer the floor for use by local artists in the meantime for a 2 year period.

LEISURE OPERATOR –
We’re exploring options for leisure uses of the bottom three floors of the Observer Building. This includes putting the word out to find experienced leisure operators with an interest in bringing to life and managing these spaces. For more information on this opportunity read this document.

LOCAL TEXTILES ARTIST – We’re searching for a local textiles artist who can create a wall hanging that incorporates the names of all the generous donors on our Crowdfunder. We will be hanging this in the OB once it’s renovated to celebrate the community support we’ve received. We really want this to be shaped by the artist AND the community taking part. Any artist who is interested please contact info@theob.org.uk
