An experienced part time project manager with a track record in event management ideally in the arts and/or heritage sector is needed to lead the roll out of programme of events for Salusbury World, a refugee support charity, to highlight 20 years of success in helping children and their families.
Salusbury World is a small charity that punches above its weight in helping to empower asylum seekers, refugee and migrant children and their families.
Based in Brent, the charity was founded in 1999 and provides a range of services to children and their parents at a number of locations in the borough, from mentoring and after-school clubs to advocacy and advice.
The event programme:
To celebrate the 20 year anniversary of the charity and to engage, inform and inspire a wide audience we are launching a multi media programme, 20:20 Vision, which will revolve around the unique stories of 20 'grown up' children and parents who have been supported by the charity from its early days.
This multi media programme, will revolve around oral histories which will be the source material for participatory media workshops in written word, photography and theatre aimed at Salusbury World beneficiaries and led by partner specialist arts organisations.
The culminating works created from these workshops will be showcased alongside professionally generated content from the participating organisations and archival photographs, significant objects, children’s drawings and other ephemera.
The suite of exhibitions/performative events will be touring the Victoria & Albert Museum, The Library at Willesden Green, Brent Civic Centre and London College of Communication among other venues. The digital outputs will be archived by Brent Museum & Archives for legacy purposes.
Salusbury World Patrons, Juliet Stevenson and Ben Bailey Smith (aka Doc Brown) will contribute live spoken word readings at the project launches.
