The Museum of Oxford is seeking a Summer Outreach Co-ordinator (SOC) to deliver activity at a series of community engagement events in community venues across Oxford city between June and October 2018.
In March 2018 the Museum was successful with its application to the Heritage Lottery Fund for a major capital re-development programme called ‘Oxford’s Hidden Histories’. The Museum’s current galleries will close at the end of April 2018 and re-open in temporary re-displayed ‘Micro-Museum’ in October 2018. This will be a small exhibition that will be open to the public until January 2020, while the capital works are undertaken in the museum’s main gallery spaces. A new Museum of Oxford will open in July 2020.
While the Museum’s galleries are closed in summer 2018 the Summer Outreach Co-ordinator will be visiting community events across the city to introduce Oxford’s Hidden Histories to event participants, to introduce the Oxford Hidden Histories project to local communities, and to start to collect stories from local peple that could feature in the new Museum of Oxford in July 2020.
