Job Opportunity - Curating for Change
Screen South’s Accentuate Programme is looking for a brand designer to work with them in designing a simple visual identity for their new project, Curating for Change. This is a critical role to ensure that all elements of this diverse national project have the same look and feel and are recognisable as part of the same programme of activity.
The work needs to be completed by late February 2022, so as to be ready for the initial launch of the Curating for Change website in April 2022.
Background to Curating for Change
Screen South, through it’s specialist programme Accentuate, has been awarded a National Lottery Heritage Fund grant to deliver a new, ground-breaking project called Curating for Change.
This project will tackle the serious under-representation of D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people in museum workforces, collections, and audiences, through the creation of eight Curatorial Fellowships and eight Curatorial Traineeships for disabled people at Partner Museums across England. Fellows and Trainees will gain the experience, training and qualifications they need to kick start or progress their Curatorial careers, ensuring that those with lived experience of disability are at the heart of museum research and interpretation. They will then lead a series of activities such as exhibitions and events, to engage the public with hidden disability history narratives.
The designer will work closely with the Managing Director of Screen South (the host organisation for Accentuate), the Head of Accentuate Programme and the Curating for Change Project Manager to design all elements of a visual identity that:
- Reflects the core programme values of excellent access for all, high quality outputs and leading transformational change in the museum sector.
- Complements the existing Accentuate brand identity
- Complements National Lottery Heritage Fund branding identity
- Includes a colour palette, typeface and logo that can be used across a range of outputs, including the project website, films, marketing, exhibitions and other day to day communication.
- Is flexible and simple to comply with, enabling staff across England to use the visual identity effectively.
- Can work well alongside the visual identify of a range of partner organisations.
- Meets the highest standards of accessibility.
The designer will need to be skilled in working collaboratively with a team of staff and flexible in their approach.
