Royal Museums Greenwich is looking for two experienced Community Facilitators to adapt and deliver development sessions with partners to target underrepresented groups (eg. Somali, African-Caribbean, African, South Asian) and develop relationships between established and newly arrived communities. Consultation on the proposed areas of activity will collaboratively develop the focus of the project in line with participants’ needs.

  • To develop a sustainable and effective monthly session format and resources
  • To develop effective evaluation activities and debriefing
  • To capture oral histories from local communities
  • To develop and deliver sessions with key community groups that ignite curiosity and conversations around objects and artefacts from the collections relating to migration’
  • To consider and advise on the language used to interpret the collections
