Going Places Community Engagement Consultant – Art Fund

Job Title: Going Places Community Engagement Consultant
Salary: £20,000
Term: January – October 2024
Location: Art Fund, 2 Granary Square, King's Cross, London N1C 4BH
Closing date: 12:00 am 24 November 2023

Art Fund is the national fundraising charity for art.

We believe that art can make you see, think and feel differently, and through our work we help make art more accessible to as many visitors as possible, wherever they are.

We are currently seeking a Community Engagement Consultant to support the development of Going Places, a new UK-wide programme that will engage and involve underrepresented audiences with museum collections through high quality, collaborative touring exhibitions and public programmes. This opportunity has been made possible through the generous support of the National Lottery Heritage Fund which has awarded a development grant to help Art Fund progress its plans in this area and apply for a full NLHF delivery grant in late 2024.

Going Places will establish five networks of 2-5 small to mid-sized museums, with each network producing two touring exhibitions over five years (2025-2030). The Community Engagement Consultant will, in collaboration with community groups and museum partners, create a set of tools and / or resources to support the networks in engaging with underrepresented community groups through consultation, co-creation and co-curation. This will include guidelines of best practice, case studies and a set of practical recommendations, actions and next steps for the networks. The Community Engagement Consultant will support partners to utilise the resources, and with Art Fund to disseminate the content to the wider sector.
