A rare opportunity to join the Sensory Trust team, this role will manage and deliver the new More Than Words project. This is a National Lottery Heritage Funded project to make heritage accessible through co-designed, inclusive, sensory-rich interpretation. This is a full time role fixed until September 2023.
The More Than Words project will create accessible, sensory-rich visitor experiences for a wider audience, demonstrating how sensory-rich interpretation can improve access, enable engagement and make connections for a range of visitors with different access needs, learning abilities and styles.
The role will work closely with 5 heritage partners in Cornwall: Wheal Martyn, King Edward Mine,
Harveys Foundry Hayle, Geevor Tin Mine and Kresen Kernow. This will include designing and running a series of small-scale workshops with community groups representing people with varying disabilities with their carers/parents/families/supporters to co-design new interpretation and visitor experience opportunities at our partner sites.
This will lead to the design, delivery and installation of a range of interpretation materials and visitor experiences with our partners to create demonstration sites of our techniques. The design will be individual to each site, informed by the workshops, tested by people in the community and delivered/installed with the support of staff and
volunteers. The project will connect with the wider heritage and cultural sector across the UK through producing new guidance on sensory-rich interpretation for heritage landscapes, a local and national training programme for those working and volunteering in the heritage sector and a national conference on sensory-rich experiences and visitor experiences in heritage environments.
The role will include outdoor activities and working with a wide range of community members,
particularly people with varying disabilities, sensory impairments and health conditions. The role will require a DBS check.
