Project manager (0,4 fte)
Fossil Free Culture NL (FFC-NL) is a collective of artists and activists that works to bring an end to oil and gas sponsorship of cultural institutions in the Netherlands. Its end goal is to terminally erode the fossil fuel industry’s social acceptance and make way for system change and a just recovery from climate breakdown.
Disobedient art is at the core of the work of Fossil Free Culture NL, a blend between art and climate justice activism. In the coming months, FFC-NL will focus on new interventions and the development of an educational programme to disseminate the knowledge and skills acquired in the last four years of practice.
FFC-NL is looking for an experienced project manager who can oversee and coordinate the different activities of the collective, coordinating and steering volunteers and keeping up with the basic communication channels.
FFC-NL is a pioneering organisation with lots of space for experimentation and joyful resistance. It is run by a small team of three committed women, and a larger group of volunteers. The project manager will collaborate closely with the team on artistic and strategic decisions, be responsible for the workflow and help professionalize the organisation to increase its impact.
This position is on a freelance basis for the coming 6 months with the possibility of extension.
