The programme
Where we are is a new national programme delivered by the British Museum and supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. From 2021-2025 the programme will work with third sector and cultural partners across the country to develop meaningful arts and cultural projects with young people.
These co-produced projects will respond to something in their local area that the young people are passionate about and as such the direction these projects will take will be driven by the young people.
This year we are working with three partners:
• Museum & Galleries Edinburgh and Edinburgh Young Carers, Edinburgh, Scotland
• Geraldine Connor Foundation and Harewood House Trust, Leeds, Yorkshire and the Humber
• Attenborough Arts Centre, University of Leicester and Pedestrian, Leicester, East Midlands
We are seeking to appoint a session facilitator for our Edinburgh partnership who will work with the young people to develop their ideas and passions into a creative output.
Once we know what the young people want to develop, the facilitator will be responsible for working with the young people to hire a relevant creative practitioner who will work closely with the facilitator, young people and project partners to shape the arts and cultural output.
Vital to the success of this project is listening to young people about what they are interested in talking about and exploring possible ways for them to express this interest. This project will not be about dictating ideas of culture to young people, but will be about listening to what culture means to them. However, it will be important to provide young people with a scaffold and framework within which to work.
By working in a co-production four-way partnership between the British Museum, cultural organisations, third sector organisations and young people, the programme aims to:
1. Remove some of the barriers to engagement with the cultural sector that young people face
2. Create a sense of agency in young people that can be reflected into their communities

Role description
You will be working with 10 young people aged 18-24 who are supported by Edinburgh Young Carers. A key part of this role will be to coax out of the young people what they are interested in and how they want to talk about that. The successful candidate will be able to work with young people who do not see themselves in museum or gallery spaces and will be able to draw out of the young people the confidence and skills needed to develop a creative output.
The sessions will take place in Museums & Galleries Edinburgh venues in the city centre (restrictions allowing).

Duties will include:
1. Working closely with the Edinburgh partners and the British Museum to develop a
robust yet flexible plan for a taster day and 6 full day sessions with the young
people, providing a framework to work with the young people.
2. Developing sessions that are relevant, responsive and adaptable to the young
people’s needs.
3. Creating a group agreement with the young people
4. Working closely with project evaluators
5. Working closely with all partners to understand Museum & Galleries Edinburgh’s
collection and the needs of Edinburgh Young Carers service users.
6. Building rapport with the young people, being mindful of their lived experience and
other responsibilities
7. Working collaboratively with a creative practitioner to shape the creative output
with young people
8. Collaborating closely with all partners, communicating clearly with Museums &
Galleries Edinburgh about the day-to-day and reporting into the British Museum
about overall progress
9. Communicating closely with all partners and committing to regular catch up
meetings #

Person specification

We are particularly interested in applications from people who have shared lived experiences with the young people in your area. Any experience required can be demonstrated by paid for or voluntary work or can come from outside the work environment.

1. Committed and passionate about co-producing meaningful creative projects with a
diverse group of young people
2. Ability to relate to young people and draw out their skills, interests and experiences
into meaningful arts/cultural project ideas
3. Experience of co-production working in museum, gallery or cultural settings
informally with a diverse group of young people
4. Experience of developing sessions that respond to various learning styles and
abilities
5. Ability to work with a creative practitioner collaboratively to develop project ideas
and outputs with young people
6. Ability to communicate effectively with project partners both verbally and in writing
7. Confidence in delivering workshops in person and online
8. Understanding and experience of safeguarding young adults
