The Museum of London are recruiting for a Youth Culture Curator to be an integral part of an exciting new project, carrying out research and collecting initiatives across London, fully engaging people in the process through partnerships, projects and events.
Deadline: 17 February 2019
As the leading museum for London, we tell the story of the world’s greatest city and its people – so why not make this the place to discover your story of London
At the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands, we connect people with the lived experience of London. The story we tell is one of place and people, evolving through interaction and exchange. We summarise what we do in three words: We Are London. It is at once our aspiration and our mandate.
We are now launching our Curating London project, to capture and explore contemporary London. We will approach Londoners to help build and diversify the collection, and shift traditional collecting practices. Over the course of the project we will develop local partnerships across London, drive Londoners involvement both in person and via social media, develop new strands of collecting and display, and actively involve Londoners in creating museum content.
The Youth Culture Curator will lead the development and delivery of work relating to young people as part of the Curating London team. You will work with local people to develop an innovative collecting initiative and to organise successful events and public programmes.
Full time, fixed term, £27,362

The closing date for applications is Sunday 17th February 2019. Successful candidates will be invited to an interview either on the 27th or 28th February 2019.
