Greetings all! Just a quick note that my son was born a few days ago and I’m currently on maternity leave for the next few months. Weekly round-ups will be on hold for the next while, though I will keep updating the jobs listings weekly/bi-weekly (just updated a few mins ago!)

Hello everyone! I’ve finally had the green light to proceed with developing a new e-journal featuring research on Irish arts management, cultural policy and related matters. Based at UCD, the journal will be published once or twice a year and feature new research on the sector, and will be edited by yours truly, with the first issue due out in autumn 2012.
Having worked in Arts Management & Cultural Policy at UCD since 2003, the need for accessible published research on the sector has been a consistent refrain. This journal will provide a readable and engaging summary of recent arts management research, delivered through an Open Journal system (complete with downloadable pdfs and searchable content, and will be indexed by major bibliographic websites). The first issue of the journal will focus primarily on outstanding recent postgraduate and academic research from UCD and sister institutions, and is intended to encourage new research directions in the sector and offer a platform for aspiring researchers and writers.
I’m currently recruiting an Assistant Editor to aid me in production of the first issue (particularly with copy editing, correspondence and aspects of layout/managing online content). The position is unpaid but will include a €500 stipend. The time commitment will be flexible and spread out over a 4-5 month period (approximately May-September, 3-5 hours weekly.) This role is especially suitable for recent graduates of arts management programmes (or similar), or current PhD postgraduates, as it provides excellent experience in reviewing and editing academic research. If you’re interested, have a look at the attached job description — email me with any questions — and send in a cover letter & CV by 26 March.

I know this is an issue of great interest to many of my readers, so I thought I’d alert you to a live chat on the subject of internships & the arts that’s taking place on the Guardian website from 12-2 pm tomorrow (2 December).
The discussion comes in the wake of the publication a few days ago by the Arts Council England of a new guide for arts organisations entitled ‘Internships in the Arts‘ — the first such ‘official’ set of guidelines issued for internships in the sector. Amongst its most radical statements is the indication that most arts organisations are obliged under UK employment law to pay their interns minimum wage.
I’ve been asked to take part as a panellist & give insight into the Irish perspective. Anyone can join the discussion however and ask questions, add your own opinions and experiences, etc. I’d love to see a strong Irish presence, given that so many of the issues are similar. Please register to join in the discussion!
