Freelance Art Workshop Developer, People’s History Museum

With support from the https://www.artfund.org/ – Art Fund, we are recruiting a freelance artist to look at our longstanding Build a Banner workshop and redevelop it to ensure it meets the values and aims of our new Learning Programme.

The Build a Banner workshop in its current form is a full day session where learners find out about the history and symbolism of PHM’s unique collection of historic and contemporary banners, and work with an artist to create their own banner on a theme of their choice.

As part of our evaluation process, we have been collecting feedback on this workshop from students, young people, teachers, and youth workers, and you will use this to inform your development ideas. Working with PHM’s Learning Officers, we would like you to develop both a half day and a full day version of the workshop. You will then run testing workshops with groups of young people and children from both formal and informal learning groups. These workshops will mainly be based at the museum, though some sessions may need to take place in the groups’ own settings. The evaluation from the testing sessions will inform any further changes we will make to the workshop, and whether it will be offered as a half or full day workshop.
