Short-term project: Specifically strategic planning & delivery for three partnership events: No Colour Bar Highland Remix festival weekend (31 May – 2 June) Festival of Education (14-15 June); Memory Archive – Windrush weekend (21-21 June)
General Role: Support the strategic planning and delivery of an events programme in a gallery, archive, school, college or community setting. Leading a small team of volunteers to ensure effective delivery.
The challenge will be to bring your event producing skills and experience to the fore. FHALMA relies on volunteering activism to make an impact on the sector and wider society: true to the origins of the pioneering Huntleys. Agreed art/archive partnerships with public events include: No Colour Bar Highland Remix , (22 March - 9 June) at Timespan, Helmsdale, for an Internationalism & Cultural Solidarity Weekender (31 May – 2 June); The Huntley Archive “bookshop” installation and workshops at the Hallam Festival of Education, Sheffield (14-15 June); The Memory Archive project with Culture& for Windrush launch weekend (20-21 June) and as the action research and content partner (June-Dec 2019).
With these summer Public Programme events, we have the opportunity to significantly raise our profile, share the knowledge with partners and especially with intergenerational audiences. These well-run events will provide a greater opportunity to raise further support, attract patrons and vital funds to continue our work. We are also currently working with Somerset House as a content partner and collaborator for the Get Up Stand Up Now exhibition, (12 June – 15 September) which will also provide further opportunities to consolidate our value to intellectual, cultural to British life.
