The Arts Council is the government agency for developing the arts in Ireland. We work in partnership with artists, arts organisations, public policy makers and others to build a central place for the arts in Irish life.
The Arts Council Collection, which was established on foot of the Art Act 1951, is central to the delivery of the Council’s strategic objectives under Making Great Art Work and in visual arts. Key to this is a policy commitment to increase the promotion of the Collection and to create greater opportunities for people across Ireland to engage with it.
The Arts Council wishes to appoint a Head of Collection to lead the collection team on the implementation of the collections policy. Reporting to the Arts Director and working closely with the Head of Visual Arts, external stakeholders, contractors and suppliers, the Head of Collection will play a key role in the developing and delivering the collection policy for Council, leading on all aspects of the collection care and management to ensure that all systems and procedures meet quality standards of best museum practice.
