Following an intense period of recruitment we are currently just looking for a Brazilian Portuguese speaker and a Curator.

Both are paid opportunities…

Community Service Exhibition

We’re embarking on an ambitious new project to catalogue, archive and curate an exhibition about the lives of the first black police officers in the West Midlands. This exhibition, inspired by our upcoming new show Community Service, will take place alongside a number of workshops in schools around the city exploring how we can uncover local heritage.

As this project is about the experience of black police officers in the West Midlands we are particularly keen to encourage applications from those with cultural connections to that heritage and/or experience. 

Wanted Curator

To direct the research, supervise archiving and shape the exhibition in consultation with the West Midlands Police Museum and supported by Stan’s Cafe.
