Forma is a contemporary arts organisation that champions ideas and artists who address the social and political questions of our times. Through a discursive process, we nurture artists’ creative vision and grow their ambition in order to develop collaborative projects that are career defining and lead to new major opportunities around the world. We pride ourselves in being an organisation that artists want to work with. We offer commissioning, fundraising and production expertise, and as a non-gallery-based organisation we present projects in partnership with cultural institutions across the UK and internationally. Forma is where ideas become art.
Artists we have collaborated with include Alberta Whittle, Cerith Wyn Evans, Cécile B Evans, Bill Morrison and Jóhann Jóhannsson, Amartey Golding, Broomberg and Chanarin, Sophie Hoyle, Benedict Drew, Jane and Louise Wilson, Mark Boulos and Himali Singh Soin.
Forma is moving into an exciting new phase of growth and is opening its first permanent home in 20 years - FormaHQ - this Spring in Southwark, London. The new cultural hub includes our offices, affordable artist studios, a café and book shop, event space, residency studio and a new public garden.
The Freelance Curator will join at a crucial time, working closely with the Artistic Director and with the support of the wider team, you will be responsible for the planning, coordination and delivery of our public and artistic programme to launch FormaHQ, engaging with local residents and attracting new audiences.
Forma Arts is a National Portfolio Organisation, supported by the Arts Council England.
