Curious Minds and Bolton Museum are looking for 2 young people aged 18 – 25 to work with them on the ‘Collecting World Connections’ project early in 2021

This role will support the ‘Collecting World Connections’ project at Bolton Museum. This brand-new project wants to connect Bolton’s diverse communities with their cultural heritage in the town and build community knowledge and engagement with their collections.

It aims to work alongside ten individuals from diverse communities across Bolton that are represented in the museum’s world collections. As part of this project, the museum service wants to collect voices and stories, along with images and objects, from these communities. They hope that this will be the beginning of much wider engagement with these communities after this initial project. To find out more please read the Job Overview.
