Accentuate History of Place
Freelance Heritage Hub Member
Screen South is looking to recruit a panel of three deaf or disabled people with specific expertise 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. For the first year of the History or Place project we recruited four deaf and disabled heritage professionals to join our Heritage Hub. These members were instrumental in helping shape our thinking and delivery of the project. We are now seeking new Heritage Hub members for the second year of project delivery History of Place to:
• Provide expert advice with specific knowledge around the heritage of deaf and disabled people.
• Provide expert knowledge in how best to engage disabled people with this heritage.
• Provide advice and guidance on the development of the online elements of the project, ensuring accessibility is to a standard of excellence.
• Provide expert knowledge as to the broader heritage sector – including advice as how to increase the profile of disability history across “mainstream” heritage venues and networks.
• Attend four Heritage Hub meetings.
• Advocate for Accentuate and help promote the project across your their networks – including social media networks.
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 February 2017 through to September 2017
