This role is an exciting opportunity for an experienced community engagement professional to work with new audiences in innovative ways to bring this amazing photographic collection to life through the Britain from Above project.
The Aerofilms Collection contains over 1 million aerial photographs dating from 1919 to 2006. Created by the pioneering firm Aerofilms Ltd, it is the most important archive collection of its type and includes unique images showing the changing face of Britain throughout the 20th century. The Collection was acquired by English Heritage and its partners, the Royal Commissions on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales and Scotland in 2007.
The Activity Team Leader will be responsible for the effective management and delivery of the Activity strand of the project which includes 16 community projects, supporting a programme of virtual volunteering, creation and embedding of education resources around the Collection, and delivery of the exhibitions programme.
The Britain from Above project is supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund and will make accessible approximately 95,000 images from the Collection dating from 1919 to 1953.
