Job Opportunity: Cultural Engagement Coordinator, Hampshire Cultural Trust
Hampshire Cultural Trust seeks to champion, showcase, connect and empower Hampshire’s culture and its creative economy. The trust manages and supports 26 arts venues and museums across Hampshire showcasing the county’s rich heritage
Better Life Chances is a new team within Hampshire Cultural Trust that aims to dedicate greater resource to reaching those who are most vulnerable or disadvantaged, who would not usually have access to arts and culture. The team focuses on the specialisms of Young People, Older People, Schools and Community, and seeks to attract external resources to the trust. Working flexibly with colleagues within the team and a wide range of partners both statutory and voluntary, Better Life Chances creates opportunities to help improve lives through cultural engagement across Hampshire.
We require an additional member to join the team. The successful candidate will deliver a funded project. We have funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation to deliver a four year project of cultural interventions in all seven of Hampshire’s Education Centres, and through the appointment of a research partner, to explore the impact of this work in order to influence policy makers.
You will coordinate this project, working with cultural practitioners, Education Centres, our research partner and other members of the team. You will be the key point of contact and keep track of all the logistical arrangements, take part in recruitment and selection of practitioners, organise meetings and a conference and keep finance and administration on track. This is a priority project around the agenda of engaging hard-to-reach young people through culture.
You will have experience of working with hard-to-reach young people, you will be energetic, highly organised and self-motivated. You will be as comfortable working alone as with the wider team, and will have an eye for detail. You will be required to travel around the county.
