Job description

Migrant Voice is looking for a Project Coordinator (4 days per week) to set up and run our new exciting project in Glasgow from June.

‘The Putting Ourselves in the Picture’ project will empower migrants to tell their stories, filling their missing place in Scottish heritage and promote integration through art, history and culture. This will ensure that migrants’ heritage (as part of Scotland’s heritage) is recognised, documented and shared with the rest of the community and for future generations.

The project builds on MV's planned 2023 exhibition at the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow. The exhibition will feature photographic portraits and accompanying text of migrants telling the stories of their lives in Scotland.

The Project Coordinator will develop the ‘Putting Ourselves in the Picture’ project for Migrant Voice. The project will run meetings, discussions and training sessions to empower migrants to use creative tools to tell their stories. In coordination with Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum the project Coordinator will be responsible for organising training, exhibitions and related events and for engaging Migrant Voice’s network members and new community members in the activities.

Applications should be submitted by writing no more than 3 pages A4 outlining how you fit the criteria for the post and send this together with your CV and the completed equal opportunities monitoring form.

Deadline for receiving all applications is: 10.00am on Monday 30 May, 2022. Interviews with those short-listed will take place on Tuesday 7 June, 2022.
