Common Ground Project Coordinator, Norfolk & Norwich Festival


Common Ground: Project Coordinator – 0.6FTE, fixed term post, until January 2023

Common Ground is an exciting new project funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It will inspire and equip young people to celebrate their cultural and natural heritage. In partnership with Norfolk and Suffolk Wildlife Trusts, National Trust, SHARE Museums East and The Prince’s Trust, Norfolk and Norwich Festival Trust have consulted, designed, tested and refined a youth engagement model to increase and sustain young people’s engagement in heritage.

Over 3 years Common Ground will inspire new forms of heritage interpretation, enabling young people to generate and present unconventional ideas about heritage. By the end of 2022 we will have engaged creatively and digitally with more than 3,000 young people and their families, delivered 100 community and heritage-based activities, trained 500 people and supported 1,500 young people to co-create and promote new heritage experiences with artists and designers. With new confidence, insight, evidence and tools, our legacy will empower our partnership, and organisations nationally, to work together, take risks and diversify and sustain youth engagement.

The Common Ground Project Coordinators’ role is to support the Common Ground Project Manager to meet two aims: to increase and sustain young people’s engagement with heritage and to develop and diversify audiences for local heritage.

The main responsibilities include coordinating meetings, training activities and participation events and managing monitoring and evaluation data on project effectiveness and outcomes for young people, heritage staff, volunteers and organisations.
