The Museum of London has embarked on an exciting new programme called ‘Memories of London’. We aim to promote the wellbeing of those affected by dementia by creating change across our organisation. We are training our front of house staff, developing onsite dementia friendly programmes, and partnering with care homes, day care centres and dementia cafes to deliver outreach activities. We have four core strands:
Collaborate: To collaborate with those affected by dementia to shape our museums and programmes.
Change: To champion change across the Museum of London and beyond.
Curious: To spark curiosity and creativity in all we do.
Connect:To connect to the community and to the story of London using our collections and exhibitions.
Memories of London is funded by the GLA and is being developed in partnership with the Alzheimer’s Society.
We have a number of upcoming opportunities for which we are seeking freelance artists/museum learning facilitators. Work will take place in care homes, dementia cafes and onsite at our two museums. If you are an artist (of any discipline, e.g. theatre, dance, music, writer etc.) or a museum freelancer who has an interest in or experience of working with those living with dementia and their carers we would love to hear from you.
Please send us:
- A short paragraph expressing your interest and your experience of experience of engaging with those living with dementia (or relevant experience)
- A link to any previous/current work, indicating your artistic discipline and/or museum background
- A copy of your CV
- Name and contact details of two referees
Please submit your interest by Wednesday 24 July. If selected we will be in touch with further opportunities. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the Memories of London Programme Manager, Amy Eastwood – email@example.com or call 020 7001 9814.
