Cultural learning and participation officer

Plan, organise and coordinate artistic and cultural education programmes

A cultural learning and participation officer plans, organises and coordinates artistic and cultural education workshops, schedules of activity and community engagement projects. Activities include teaching arts, culture and heritage subjects, creative workshops, visits, talks, performances, festivals, events and digital arts, using online content and social networks as appropriate. They may be accessed in cultural venues, online (through delivering webinars) and other settings such as schools, hospitals and prisons, and community settings such as care homes. These activities act as a vehicle to enable learning, skills development, wellbeing, social inclusion and community engagement. In this role, you’ll need to consider the impact of cultural differences, how to overcome barriers to inclusion and demonstrate the social benefits of engaging with hard to reach groups. Typically, you’ll make decisions on booking venues, appropriate artists, advertising, appropriate audiences, taking feedback and fundraising activities.
