Programming and Administrative Assistant Musical Events
The Horniman Museum and Gardens is seeking a Programming and Administrative Assistant.
As Programming and Administrative Assistant, you will help initiate and run an enhanced events programme for the year 2019-2020 made possible through HLF (Heritage Lottery Fund) support. The flagship programme, under the umbrella title ‘Hear It Live!’, gives visitors the opportunity to hear original instruments from the Horniman’s collection at short, weekly recital-talks held in the Music Gallery. It also comprehends several other special events throughout the year including concerts, master classes, a conference and a competition.
You will work with the Deputy Keeper of Musical Instruments, Learning, Volunteering and Events staff to initiate and deliver the programme and provide practical management for the events alongside administration, publicity and the design and implementation of evaluation.
You will have experience of promoting, delivering and evaluating the success of public events in the arts, museums or galleries sector working with artists from a range of musical forms, including classically-trained musicians. Some knowledge of the UK and European ‘Early Music’ sector would be an advantage.
You will also enjoy working with diverse community audiences e.g. those with mental health needs, older people, families and schools.
Ideally, you will have experience with live-streaming events, and/or preparing videos/recordings for online use, together with a knowledge of good practice in terms of arts and cultural programming and copyright issues.
