Can you inspire communities to engage with their cultural heritage? Hull Museums are looking for an aspiring Community Curator to connect our world cultures and slavery collections to local communities in Hull and East Riding. You will facilitate community research alongside our national and international partners. You will work with the team and partners to create programming and new displays at Wilberforce House Museum and in the wider community that explore new narratives and perspectives not previously explored within the walls of the museum.

Working with curatorial colleagues, and other departments, particularly Learning, Marketing and Front of House, you will build connections between our nationally significant collections, local communities and a range of audiences. We are looking for a good communicator, who is able to listen to communities and not afraid to think outside of traditional museum practices to create meaningful outcomes.

Funded as part of the Humber Museums Consortium National Portfolio Organisation, you will have familiarity with the Arts Council England’s Let’s Create strategy. You will also have a good grounding in working with world cultures collections or collections associated with the Transatlantic Slave Trade and/or sensitive or challenging histories.

Experience of working with communities is key. You will work with existing partners, but also forge new sustainable relationships. An understanding of working within an Accredited Museum and keeping on top of documentation, responding to enquiries and administrating loans, where necessary, is also required.

This post is funded through Arts Council England NPO funding until 31st March 2023
