Whose Heritage? Research Residency Manager

Culture& is recruiting an experienced arts and heritage consultant to lead our pilot programme New Museum School Whose Heritage? Research Residencies supported by the Art Fund and Arts Council England.

Culture& is an independent arts and education charity formed in 1987 and based in London. Culture&’s mission is to open up who makes and enjoys arts and heritage by diversifying the workforce and making our cultural heritage meaningful to all communities.

This is an important development for Culture&, and for the arts and heritage sectors, that will offer research residencies to recent New Museum School graduates at leading arts and heritage organisations. The Manager will be the link between host organisations and researchers in residence, and support graduates in their research and curatorial practice to maximise their learning experience and programme outcomes. Whilst COVID-19 restrictions are in place Culture& will provide support for staff to work remotely. 

The successful applicant will be joining an ambitious and ground-breaking organisation at a time when its work has never been more vital. The Whose Heritage? Research Residencies will address the widespread concerns about decolonising heritage that have come into sharp focus this year as a result of the Black Lives Matter movement.

We particularly welcome applications from Black and minority ethnic candidates as they are underrepresented within the arts and heritage sectors at senior management level.

To apply please download the recruitment pack and address your application CV and Covering Letter to Dr Errol Francis, along with the completed equal opportunities form and send to samuel.pontin@cultureand.org by midnight Sunday 3 January 2021. Interviews will be held on Tuesday 5 January 2021.
