We have a fantastic freelance creative practitioner opportunity to work with Manchester Museum as part of our Capital Redevelopment with a number of partner schools on a Start project funded by Children and the Arts.

The project – The Art of Identity – will involve partnerships with a number of Greater Manchester schools and aims to engage over two hundred Key Stage 3 students. The project will be linked with our Capital Redevelopment, a part of which is to develop a permanent South Asia Gallery at Manchester Museum. Therefore we are looking for a creative practitioner whose work has a demonstrable link to South Asia and who can create a collaborative Museum-Schools piece of artwork on the topic of ‘Identity in South Asia’.
