We welcome applications from D/deaf, disabled and neurodiverse people and are happy to discuss support for applications if required.
Curating for Change: D/deaf and Disabled People Leading within Museums, will tackle the serious under representation of disabled people working within the museum sector through a curatorial led targeted work placement programme, peer to peer mentoring and sector wide forums.
Screen South have recently been awarded £116,400 from National Lottery Heritage Fund to undertake a development phase for the project. Part of this development will include producing a digital engagement strategy for the delivery phase of Curating for Change.
We also would like the consultant to reflect on the digital activities that have taken place during the Covid 19 pandemic, including how best to bring people together via digital platforms as well as ways to engage audiences remotely with heritage, and embed some of this learning into the longer term strategies of the project. This might include tools such as Zoom, Microsoft Teams or Google Hangout, reflecting on the benefits and drawbacks of these platforms.
During this time, Accentuate has also pioneered a partnership with Hastings Contemporary to utilise a telepresence robot double https://www.hastingscontemporary.org/exhibition/robot-tours/ we would like to explore more ways this tool could potentially be used. The digital consultant will outline plans for how to deliver the main digital outputs for the project.
