Head of Unit for Fine Arts and Crafts at HDK Sweden
Valand Academy and Academy of Design and Crafts, Gothenburg, Sweden
Applications by March 7, 2019
In January 2020, Valand Academy and the Academy of Design and Crafts (HDK) at the University of Gothenburg will merge to form a completely new Department of Fine Arts and Design. We are now seeking a visionary Head of Unit to lead the new Unit for Fine Arts and Crafts and develop cooperation between the two subject areas.
Over the next few years, the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts will implement a change project with the aim of creating an attractive work, education and research environment for future students, employees and collaboration partners. When Valand Academy and HDK merge in 2020 and form a new Department of Fine Arts and Design, a new Unit for Fine Arts and Crafts will be formed from the current Unit for Fine Arts within Valand Academy and the Unit for Arts and Crafts, currently within HDK.
Valand Academy and HDK are currently seeking a Head of Unit to lead the Unit for Fine Arts and – from January 2020 – the new merged Unit for Fine Arts and Crafts. As Head of Unit, you will play a key role developing and managing the unit before, during and after the merger.
