Stanmer Park Restoration Project – Oral History Project
Brighton & Hove City Council

Tenders are invited from an inspiring individual to work as a Freelance Oral Historian to help to deliver a participatory, heritage focused, oral history and memory collection project which includes creative, interpretative outputs using the oral history for the Stanmer Park Restoration Project.

With funding and support from the Heritage Lottery Fund, together with other stakeholders we are engaged in a programme of restoration of Stanmer Park.

The oral historian will collect oral histories and memories from a wide range of people. The oral historian will then support project participants, project staff and stakeholders to use these memories to contribute to the development of interpretive outputs, including tours, exhibition and heritage activities and events.

It will be important for the appointee to work flexibly over the lifetime of the Oral History project and to respond to external deadlines, as these may change.

The Budget for £12,000.00 has been allocated for this role.
