Landscape Partnership seeks creative arts advisor and consultants for fascinating archival research projects

The Cranborne Chase and Chalke Valley Landscape Partnership (LP), a five-year Heritage Lottery funded scheme aimed at engaging people with the historic, natural and cultural landscapes of the area, is seeking to appoint a Creative Arts Advisor as well as commission two pieces of archival research.

The Creative Arts Advisor will be required to devise creative ways to engage different audiences, develop an exciting arts programme, identify sources of additional funding and help devise creative ways to monitor and evaluate the projects and scheme as a whole.

The first archival research project will involve identifying objects for a potential exhibition on Heywood Sumner, a painter, illustrator and craftsman who, in later life, recorded the archaeology, geology and folklore of the Cranborne Chase area.

The role of the consultant/consultancy appointed will include researching public and private collections, generating potential themes for the exhibition, undertaking a review of secondary literature on Heywood Sumner and providing ideas for additional ‘non Sumner’ items that could be used as sources to see him in a wider context.

The second archive research project involves producing assessments, written overviews and, where appropriate, catalogues of material relating to Gen Pitt-Rivers, one of the founding fathers of archaeology, especially in connection to his work on the Rushmore estate; the archaeologists working in the LP area between 1900-1950; sources and maps relating to the Cranborne Chase; and artists inspired by the area.

The consultant for this piece of work is not required to produce the definitive guide to historical information within the LP area, but use their expertise to identify a selective sample of different types of historical sources which can be used to engage audiences with exciting and untold stories.

The deadline for all tenders is 5pm on 29 September 2017. The fee for each research projects is £1,500. The budget for the Creative Arts Advisor role is no more than £4,000 (excluding VAT).

For an informal discussion or more information about the roles, contact Roger Goulding, Landscape Partnership development officer; tel: 01725 517417; email: rogergoulding@cranbornechase.org.uk.
