MAGNET Touring Exhibitions Co-ordinator
- £31,340 per annum (£31,980 after probation)
- Three year fixed term contract – 35 hours per week, Monday to Friday
In 2020 Art Fund and the Horniman Museum and Gardens formed a strategic partnership to develop and deliver on an innovative 18 month pilot project. This project saw 12 museums from around the UK come together to form the Museums and Galleries Network for Exhibition Touring (MAGNET).
MAGNET was initiated to explore the premise that it is more sustainable for museums to pool resources in developing exhibitions to tour amongst them, than to develop single-use temporary exhibitions on their own. Building on the learnings of a pilot, MAGNET partners aimed to co-curate a series of collections-based exhibitions with high-quality inter-disciplinary content designed to tour nationally.
Following on from this successful pilot, the MAGNET project has now been awarded another three years’ funding from Arts Council England and Art Fund to allow the network to further develop and tour three exhibitions, and to develop a sustainable business plan beyond this period, including further touring exhibitions.
The Coordinator is pivotal to the network, working with partners to help organise the exhibition development. You will optimise the activities of the network and make it easy for partners to take part.
You will have experience in developing touring exhibitions and have a great facility for collaboration and communication. You will be skilled at developing relationships and administration across the network, and able to work under your own initiative to lead on strategies.
