Job Title Marketing and Press Officer Comj I. my Collective Gallery

When did you start 3 our joh'r‘ I’ve been at the Collective Gallery for three years now and my role has evolved from gallery assistant to marketing and press - this was the area I was naturally drawn to and enjoyed the most. I‘ve been the Marketing and Press Officer for nearly two years.

So what docs; your job actually iiivolvtt’.‘ The Collective Gallery do such exciting projects as well as exhibitions. It‘s my job to get the word out that these great things are happening and let everyone know what’s on when. or that they can get involved with upcoming projects.

Best .' Worst Aupor‘ls'? The best aspect for me is working with lots of different artists. There is a huge variety in the level of experience of the artists who show at the Collective Gallery but you can learn something from all of them. The gallery has huge beautiful windows but it’s hard to keep the heat in so the worst aspect for me is that I‘m always cold!

What did you do lJL‘ILH'C you sign too this job”? I studied Time Based Art at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. I have an arts background as opposed to

a marketing one and I think having a genuine interest in contemporary art is a definite advantage when marketing it.

What's the best way to gel Ll iol) Iiko your 53'? There are a lot of different galleries who do placements and internships. That's how I started out. It allows you to find your feet in a creative environment and get on-the-job experience.

What advice would you give to .1 young Jill at the start

of his career? I‘m still a young Jill! I would advise applying for and making use of any funding that's available to you

for training and courses - this can connect you to people with different skills and more experience. I had a wonderful mentor who I approached from meeting on a training course which helped me enormously. I‘ve also had informal mentors in the form of dynamic individuals I‘ve encountered along the way.

Whose talents will be gracing the Collective this summer? Right now there is an ongoing project called The How Not to Cook Book lessons learned the hard way. This is a limited edition book and art project by Aleksandra Mir commissioned and produced by Collective Gallery. Based on Aleksandra's personal history of cooking disasters. the project invites 1000 people from all around the world to

give their advice of how NOT to cook. It‘s a fun project and anyone can contribute. The final cookbook will be launched this summer.
