The British Art Network (http://www.tate.org.uk/about/projects/british-art-network) is a Subject Specialist Network bringing together professionals working on British art including curators, researchers and academics, reflecting the combined strength of the UK’s public collections and curatorial expertise in this field. Led by Tate and the Paul Mellon Centre, the network will be expanding its programme in 2019.
Over the next few years, the network will increase its visibility and become a high-profile hub for the promotion and dissemination of world-class curatorial research on British art. This will be achieved through the development of the existing programme of seminars/events on British art, the register of expertise, online resources, the e-newsletter and the subgroups.
This is your chance to join the National and International Partnerships team, working closely with the Manager, National Partnerships and a British Art Network Convenor to ensure effective delivery of the project. You will show strong administrative skills which will help develop membership records, the register of expertise in British art, network newsletters and the network’s online resources. You will also provide support for the coordination of events, such as seminars, workshops, conferences and support for continued professional development opportunities for the members. An awareness of issues of equality and cultural diversity as they affect the work of a major museum will be essential, as will excellent organisation skills and the ability to communicate effectively with a variety of stakeholders.
The British Art Network is supported by the Paul Mellon Centre and public funding provided by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.
