Are you an enthusiastic, people-focused educator with experience working with schools, children and young people within the community and beyond? Do you value inclusivity, arts and creativity for all? Are you interested in a dynamic role that combines development of programmes and on-the-ground delivery? Read on.
A unique opportunity for an experienced, energetic and curious arts and heritage educator interested in creating programmes for children, schools and young people to deliver the remaining Heritage Fund activity plan following the opening of Pitzhanger Manor in March 2019 and build on this initial success by creating new programmes, measure impact, inform the Learning and Public Programmes strategy, and develop audiences.
Pitzhanger Manor is the Grade 1 listed ‘country’ house of architect Sir John Soane, designed and built by Soane 1800-1804 in what was then rural Ealing, West London.
Pitzhanger has just reopened to the public following a £12m Heritage Fund (formerly the HLF) and ACE-supported building project to restore Soane’s original design and upgrade the adjacent Gallery so it can stage ambitious and challenging contemporary exhibitions. The conservation and the inaugural exhibition of mirror sculptures by Anish Kapoor have received widespread praise and positive reviews in the press, attracting large visitor numbers, supported by the Learning and Public Programme mission to facilitate opportunities for creativity, participation and debate. The Candidate will join the Learning and Public Programme team to deliver the remaining ambitious Heritage Fund activity plan targets, experiment and build on this initial impact by creating new programmes connecting people to art, architecture and design in meaningful ways.
Reporting to the Learning and Public Programmes Manager, and working closely with Pitzhanger’s close-knit team, you will create an exciting and innovative offer for audiences locally and beyond. Using your experience working with schools, children and young people you will grow the work of the organisation including networking to broaden the organisation’s reach, monitoring and reporting on the impact of your work, and making compelling cases to secure funding. Thriving in a bustling environment, you are a problem-solver and consummate communicator who will embrace an all-hands-on-deck approach with an entrepreneurial, collaborative and humorous spirit.
