KWMC currently have a commission for an artist residency and freelance opportunities for emerging creatives.


1. Artist Commission: Living, Working, Making Together

How do artists and communities live, work and make together? How might defunct models of re-generation and ‘art-washing’ be redefined and re-imagined? What could the relationship look like between artists and communities in edge-city and suburban areas like Knowle West?

Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC) is seeking to commission three artists to explore these questions through a series of residencies in Knowle West between May to September 2018.

For more details and how to apply please read the artist brief below.

Deadline for application: midnight on Wednesday 21st February 2018.

If you would like any further information about this project or have any questions, please contact, or on 0117 903 0444.

2. Eight: Freelance opportunities for young creatives

Eight is our supported employment platform for emerging creatives and the Eight team are looking for web developers to join them on a project-by-project freelance basis.

Eight champions diversity in the creative sectors and aims to break the cycle of creatives needing work experience to get a job – and not being able to get a job because they can’t get any experience! Clients commission Eight to undertake a range of projects, including shooting videos, building websites, designing flyers and taking photographs. Recently Eight began delivering immersive workshops and providing Virtual Reality/360 video too.

As part of any commission Eight provides paid ‘on-the-job’ training for emerging creatives by partnering them with experienced professionals. Clients receive high quality work at competitive rates, while emerging creatives learn, earn and develop their portfolios.

No previous job experience is necessary to work with Eight, just a portfolio of work demonstrating your ability. Eight is currently looking for people with the following skills:

Web developers (front and back end)
Knowledge of HTML/CSS/JavaScript, UX, WordPress,
Experience working with content management systems desirable
Graphic designers  and illustrators
Experience working with Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe InDesign

If you’re aged 18+ and want to further your career in the creative industries please contact Jen or Noomi to register your interest in being part of Eight. Eight is particularly keen to hear from groups that are under-represented in the creative industries, including residents of South Bristol and BS4 postcodes, and BAME, disabled and LGBTQ creatives.
