LIBERTY is an exciting international arts programme exploring and celebrating freedom, led by UK cultural development charity, ArtReach in partnership with 11 other cultural organisations based in 10 countries.

The programme is an ambitious and innovative creative response to current challenges facing Europe. At a time of significant change for Europe, ArtReach and partners want to focus on the positive impact of creative integration through art and culture, helping to forge a new sense of identity and place (both locally and Europe-wide) with strong engagement from young people. We also want to significantly develop and enhance a process of artist and artistic collaboration and audience development, in particular for young artists and audiences aged 30 and under.

  • Willing to embrace a collaborative approach to working with the ArtReach marketing and artistic team, Liberty EU partners, and website development teams for graphic design requirements.
  • Able to work in partnership with a web development team for the site, ensuring complimentary design and successful integration with the website’s key functionality.
  • Understanding of the requirements of working with small charitable organisations delivering ambitious projects.
  • A strong track record of design for similar arts/cultural programmes or organisations that are ‘device-responsive’, with examples that exist today.
