Through a contemporary literature programme they link the creativity of the past with that of the present.

The Wordsworth Trust is part of the Cumbria Museum Consortium, along with Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery Trust and the Lakeland Arts Trust.  The Consortium was awarded Major Partner Museum status by Arts Council England and a grant of £3.2m. In reviewing the successful applicants, The Guardian commented that “The Cumbria group stands out as appealing, inventive and new.” The Consortium is funded to deliver exciting and innovative programmes that will celebrate excellence, raise standards and ensure that more people experience and are inspired by the richness of Cumbria’s museums.

They are looking to recruit an experienced and committed person to lead in the planning, development, delivery and evaluation of the Trust’s community outreach programme.  You will have experience of planning and delivering successful community-based projects, of networks and building fruitful partnerships.
