Royal Museums Greenwich is looking for two experienced Community Facilitators to adapt and deliver development sessions with partners to target underrepresented groups (eg. Somali, African-Caribbean, African, South Asian) and develop relationships between established and newly arrived communities. Consultation on the proposed areas of activity will collaboratively develop the focus of the project in line with participants’ needs.
The Community Facilitators will explore the collection, drawing out a range of primary materials (3D objects and archival materials) that most effectively speak to the lived experience and shared legacies of migration.
