Job Opportunity - Accentuate History of Place, Freelance Heritage Hub Member - deadline 15 February 2016

Accentuate History of Place
Freelance Heritage Hub Member

Screen South is looking to recruit a panel of 3 deaf or disabled people with specific interest in the Heritage Sector to form a “Heritage Hub”. Accentuate is a specialist programme within Screen South, that challenges perceptions of disability by providing life changing opportunities for deaf and disabled people to participate and lead within the cultural sector.  Deaf and disabled People are at the heart of everything Accentuate does – either as participants or as those leading the vision of the programme.  In the planning stages of the History of Place project we recruited three deaf and disabled heritage professionals to join our Heritage Hub.  These members were instrumental in helping shape our thinking and planning of the project. We are now seeking new Heritage Hub members for the first year of project delivery of History of Place. 

• Providing advice with specific knowledge around the heritage of deaf and disabled people.
•  Providing knowledge in how best to engage disabled people with this heritage.
• Providing advice and guidance on the development of the online elements of the project, ensuring accessibility is to a standard of excellence.
• Providing knowledge as to the broader heritage sector – including advice as how to increase the profile of disability history across “mainstream” heritage venues and networks.
• Advocating for Accentuate and help promote the project across their networks – including social media networks.
• Attend four Heritage Hub meetings, to be held in London.
• Respond to any emails or phone calls (depending on access requirements) from the Head of the Accentuate Programme or the History of Place Project Manager.
• Contribute to a final evaluation at the end of the first year of the project

Fee and Timescale
The fee is £210 + VAT per day to attend four Hub meetings. The daily fee includes attending a half day meeting plus reasonable preparation and follow up relating to Heritage Hub meetings.  Meetings will be held in London and reasonable travel expenses will be covered. The role will run from March 2016 through to November 2016.
