Learning Content Officer

Are you passionate about bringing art to everyone? Do you believe in the power of digital to engage young people with the arts? If so, apply now for this brilliant opportunity to transform access to the nation's art...

Art UK is a cultural education charity on a mission to make the art in UK public collections accessible to everyone, for enjoyment, learning and research. They enable global audiences to learn about the nation’s art collection by digitising artworks, telling the stories behind the art and creating exciting opportunities for public interaction with art, both online and offline. Originally focused on oil paintings, their scope has widened to include prints, drawings, watercolours, sculpture and photography. They are currently documenting and digitising the nation’s sculptures – both in collections and in public spaces. This exciting project has major funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund and is due to be completed in 2021.
