The ambition of the Pathways to the Past Project is to create a step change in how audiences engage with the museum that is enduring in the long term. The HLF Project aims to enable the museum to fulfil its vision:
Situated at the foot of the South Downs within England’s newest National Park, Petersfield’s Museum will be a focal point for the area’s unique history and cultural heritage. It will be at the heart of local life and a compelling attraction for visitors from further afield. Historic buildings and contemporary architecture with welcoming social areas and stimulating learning spaces, wide ranging, engaging collections and diverse educational and events programmes will inspire visitors of all ages to investigate and explore further our region’s many historic and cultural assets.
The project will transform the museum buildings, exhibitions and programmes, improving dramatically what the museum can offer the public. It will create the capacity to ensure that the museum is successfully integrated into the visitor destination of the South Downs National Park at the same time as being strongly rooted in the local community, putting Petersfield Museum on the map for local people and day-trippers alike. The project aims to connect with young people, families, visitors to the South Downs National Park and special interest groups and researchers.
Enthusiasm, flexibility and a “can do” attitude are prerequisites for this position. Application is by CV with covering letter which should be no more than two sides of A4.
