The National Media Museum presents up to six temporary exhibitions every year. We attract over 700,000 visitors and have ambitious plans to raise our profile further. We have developed a national touring and partnerships strategy that will take our exhibitions to galleries, museums and arts centres across the UK.
Your experience of managing touring exhibitions, brokering relationships and working collaboratively with external partners will be essential to the successful delivery of this strategy. You will take a lead role in managing the touring budget and working with touring venues to oversee the delivery of exhibitions. This is a fantastic opportunity to promote our temporary exhibitions to new audiences and establish an extensive range of partners across the UK.
You will also help us continue to deliver a vibrant temporary exhibition programme by leading cross-function teams to develop exhibition and display ideas, present proposals to colleagues and create the necessary feasibility and scoping documents. Experience of managing the production of exhibition projects in a museum or gallery is essential here.
Award winning, visionary and truly unique, the National Media Museum embraces photography, film, television, radio and the web. Part of the NMSI family of museums, we aim to engage, inspire and educate through comprehensive collections, innovative education programmes and a powerful yet sensitive approach to contemporary issues.
