p/t 0.8 (30 hrs per week)

£35,000 (£28,000 pro rata)

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced project co-ordinator / curator, with a background in culture and the arts, to oversee delivery of a varied and innovative cultural programme.

Connecting Threads is the cultural strand of Destination Tweed, a multi-part landscape scale project that includes the development of a new River Tweed Trail from source to sea. Connecting Threads engages with communities of interest (cultural, heritage, environmental and educational organisations) and communities of place along the length of the proposed 113-mile River Tweed Trail within the Scottish Borders, north Northumberland and Dumfries and Galloway.

Connecting Threads is delivered in partnership with Tweed Forum, and is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF), Esmée Fairbairn Foundation and others. The programme is delivered by a team of five and is in the second year of a five-year delivery phase. The project is managed by the Southern Uplands Partnership (SUP), a charity with 25 years’ experience of developing and delivering sustainable development projects across the south of Scotland.
