Having just secured our lease for an additional 5 years (yay!), we are looking to expand our team to help with the running of the space.

Big Shop Friday is currently run and programmed by two voluntary co-directors (Roisin Callaghan and Daniel Chehade); we are looking to expand this team to a committee of six people, who will collectively be responsible for the running and programming of the space.

We have found that having different skill sets and experience has worked well for Big Shop so far, and by adding more voices into the programming of Big Shop Friday we hope to be able to reach more creatives across Milton Keynes, to have a space where they can come and meet other artists, expand networks and just hang out.

Co-directors will have specific roles which ensure the space functions effectively, however, will work collaboratively to put together the Big Shop Friday events programme.

In order to ensure that Big Shop Friday continues to deliver a relevant and engaging programme, co-directors will hold their position for a maximum of two/three years.

We are looking for members from Milton Keynes who have access to CMK, as key holder responsibilities will be part of the role.

Let us know about you, what you've been up to and why this is of interest to you. Email your expression of interest to bigshopfriday@gmail.com (audio/video applications also accepted)

Deadline to get in touch is midnight, 30 November 2020.

About us
Big Shop Friday is a non-profit artist-led organisation and arts space based in central Milton Keynes. Our aim is to bring together the emerging creative community of Milton Keynes by offering them a platform to enable creativity and collaboration to grow organically through a public programme of events.

We’ve initiated a wide range of different activity including a cultural magazine shop, independent café, a newspaper, talk series, collaborative exhibitions, a sell-out print sale and supper clubs. Our eclectic calendar of events has enabled and facilitated, creativity and collaboration across Milton Keynes between – and in-between – the existing cultural organisations and the public.
