Deadline: 14th June 2021

Posted: 06/09/2021

The National Maritime Museum has a well-established and popular
programme of family activities that runs across the year, both online
and on-site. As they come out of lockdown, and reopen the Museum, the
Family Programme is responding to new needs amongst family audiences.

Across the last year, families with children with special educational
needs have faced huge challenges with support and resources reduced or
removed, with changes to routine forced, and with uncertainty around the
future all impacting their wellbeing. 

This programme will focus on local families with children (under 13
years) with special educational needs. The programme will give families
the opportunity to participate, explore and express themselves as a
family unit using a wide range of sensory resources inspired by the
Museum and its themes.

Royal Museums Greenwich is looking for an experienced
creative/artistic facilitator to develop and deliver the programme for
local SEND families. The facilitator will consult with local families
and support organisations to develop a programme with and for SEND
families. This will be piloted, evaluated and reflected upon, before the
programme rolls out to become a regular part of the family programme.

Sessions will run once a month using the Museum as inspiration and
creative activities to inspire, engage, and boost confidence and
wellbeing. Programme aims include:

  • To engage families in creative activities that support playful learning opportunities within the museum
  • To provide a safe, engaged space for families to learn, explore and be curious together
  • To create a space where families can increase their self-confidence
  • To raise awareness of the National Maritime Museum as a useful resource and social space for the local community
  • To provide a space for local SEND families to meet other local families
