Connecting Threads – Job Opportunity:
The Southern Uplands Partnership is looking for an experienced and enthusiastic individual with a background in visual communication to join the Connecting Threads team. This role will contribute to the delivery of an ambitious four-year programme of cultural activity based around the River Tweed in the south of Scotland.
Connecting Threads is the cultural strand of Destination Tweed, a landscape-scale project that aims to conserve and celebrate the River Tweed from source to sea. Weaving cultural activity through the Destination Tweed project, Connecting Threads is supporting engagement with and awareness of our environment and heritage through access to the arts. Focussing on the Tweed as a cultural landscape, Connecting Threads’ programme of activities is shaped by the river habitat itself. Working in partnership with local communities and cultural, educational and environmental organisations, Connecting Threads will bring different knowledges and creative practices together in experiential ways to support a culture of stewardship and collaboration.
The River Messenger will be part of a small creative team working, alongside and in collaboration with the River Culture Curator and three River Culture Animateurs to share, communicate, promote and record the Connecting Threads project and its activities.
This position is offered on a part-time basis on a 4-year contract (subject to funding).
Flexible and hybrid working are supported for this role.
