This morning LABoral Centre for Art and Creative Industries published an international call for applications to fill the post of Director of Activities. The conditions of the selection process establish a profile with wide-ranging experience — particularly in the art and creative industries sector — as well as international reach and knowledge of the surrounding region, a sphere in which the centre is looking to deepen its ties through collaboration with regional institutions and bodies. The period for submitting applications will be open until 30 March 2016.

Among his or her objectives, the Director of Activities will be required to combine developing LABoral’s distinctive and forward-looking project with a clear international focus and a commitment to the region. The Centre for Art and Creative Industries is one of the cornerstones of Gijón’s “Golden Mile of Knowledge”, a space where science and technology live side-by-side with art and culture.

In this context, working with technological institutions, parks and centres, as well as with the Asturian industrial sector, in spheres of interest that contribute to developing LABoral takes on special importance. Among the institutions with which the centre aims to collaborate more closely are the University of Oviedo, the Museo de Bellas Artes de Asturias, the Escuela Superior de Arte del Principado de Asturias in Avilés, the Escuela de Arte de Oviedo, secondary schools teaching the baccalaureate in art, and the Centro Integrado de Comunicación, Imagen y Sonido de Langreo. In addition, LABoral will also seek to promote the art scene in Asturias nationally and internationally.

The Director of Activities must develop a strategic plan for the centre’s programme of activities in the areas of exhibition, production, education and research. The profile for the appointment devotes special attention to the candidates’ experience in managing projects connected with the visual arts, digital culture and creative industries.
