Recruiting: Community Curated Exhibition Volunteers

Do you have a passion for history?

Are you interested in learning new skills and researching soldiers stories from the First World War?

The Fusilier Museum London is looking to recruit enthusiastic volunteers to be involved in our latest community curated exhibition.

We will be researching the lives of Royal Fusiliers Frank York and Frank Moore both wounded in action during the First World War.
Answering questions such as – what happened to soldiers after they were wounded, what type of treatment did they received, how they were rehabilitated into society and what type of support was available to them.
The Fusilier Museum London is looking for creative and enthusiastic Volunteer Exhibition Researchers to explore these questions and to curate a temporary exhibition following soldiers journeys from the battlefields of the First World War to the streets of England.

If the challenge of researching, writing and putting on your own exhibition excites you, then please get in touch with us – stephanie@fusiliermuseumlondon.org / telephone 0203 166 6912.

The group will meet once a week from Tuesday 2nd August (however we will be accepting new volunteers until the end of Aug) until the end of October. You must be able to commit to this weekly meeting.

The exhibition will be on display at the Tower Hamlets Local History Archive and Library from 1st November – 31st December 2016 and will open with a public event.

We are looking for:

Exhibition researchers – to research the Fusilier Museum London’s collections, to write text and source images for the exhibition and to curate and design the exhibition panels.
