Freelance Project Coordinator Opportunity

The Young People’s Guide to Lincolnshire Museums project will soon be kicking off so we need a freelance project coordinator to work with museums in Lincolnshire and young people to realise our dreams. Do you have experience of working with young people in museums or arts and culture and social media? Fancy getting the museums and young people together to create a dedicated YouTube channel where young people can express their ideas about the county’s museums and collections? Got lots of ideas about the creative potential of social media and how it can be used to engage people with museums? We’d like to hear from you.

For further information and a copy of the brief please get in touch with Hannah Gould, Museum Development Officer (Lincolnshire) on 01507 329233 / 07825 062011 or email  The closing date for applications is Friday 3 September
