Job Opportunity - Curating for Change
Screen South, through its pioneering Accentuate Programme, is seeking to recruit an experienced evaluator to monitor progress throughout delivery of their project, Curating for Change.
The Consultant Evaluator will be experienced in evaluating large scale multi partner projects, working with D/deaf and disabled people, working with a range of stakeholders across the voluntary sector, and understanding the nature of a heritage project which seeks to tackle change within the workplace.
Background to Curating for Change
Funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund, the ground-breaking Curating for Change, tackles the serious under-representation of D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people in museum workforces, collections, interpretation and audiences. D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent Curatorial 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. The findings and lessons from the project will be shared with the museum and heritage sector more widely, aiming to bring about a sea-change in the way museums work, in terms of D/deaf and disability representation.
The Evaluator will provide an independent perspective and expertise in assessing the overall impact of the Curating for Change project, reflecting on the evidence provided at key points in the project delivery. In particular they will:
- Assess the project Evaluation Strategy which is outlined in the Curating for Change Activity Plan, making suggestions in relation to methods for collecting and monitoring information.
- Work with the Head of Accentuate to devise a series of monitoring forms and questions, based on suggestions outlined in the Evaluation Strategy.
- Devise and agree content of online surveys
- Devise and agree content of telephone surveys
- Devise a strategy for focus group evaluation with Fellows, Trainees and Museum Hosts.
- Meet with the Accentuate/Curating for Change delivery team at least six times over the course of the project
- Attend at least eight events or exhibitions over the course of the project
- Undertake a clearly defined core number of telephone interviews
- Produce an interim and full and final report
The total maximum fee for the role is £17,666.00 (+ VAT if charged) to cover all costs, including travel to at least 8 Museum sites across England.
The role will run from June 2022 through to March 2024.
