University of Cambridge Museums is a consortium of the eight University Museums and the Cambridge University Botanic Garden, which works in partnership with other Cambridge University collections as well as with museums regionally, nationally and internationally. Our programmes focus on unlocking the University’s collections, and the research activities which underpin them, for a larger and more diverse audience.
We are now recruiting an Inclusion Coordinator who will report to the Learning Associate: Inclusion, with a remit across the UCM.
This is a central role in Age Well, the UCM’s new programme that aims to support older people’s health and wellbeing through cultural connections – particularly those most likely to experience barriers to engagement. Age Well is a new initiative that brings together several established museum programmes designed with and for older people including ‘Dance with the Museum’ and ‘Portals to the World’. This work sits in the context of the UCM’s inclusion programme where collections are used as a springboard for dialogue, exchange and a wide range of creative activities promoting health and well-being.
As well as delivery and co-ordination of activities, the role contributes to evaluation and research in relation to the programme area and sharing and disseminating practice, supporting our sector leadership responsibilities.
This fixed term post, until 31st July 2023, is funded by the Linbury Trust.
Please note that this post is 2.5 days per week, two full days need to be a Wednesday and Friday. The other half day will be agreed at the time of appointment
