We are looking for a dynamic project manager with experience in delivering innovative exhibitions and events. This is an exciting fixed term opportunity (6 - 8 months) to be involved in an engaging collaborative project which features photographic and video storytelling of people around Scotland and their wide-ranging connections to the sea.

One of the main aims of this project is to showcase the important connections between people and Scotland’s marine natural heritage, amidst the hidden biodiversity and climate crises that have unfolded in our seas. This project will help amplify different perspectives and stories of how these issues are impacting the many communities around our shores. The project aims to raise awareness of these issues and inspire greater dialogue and action within communities, and empower people to get involved in making a difference.

The work to gather these stories is almost complete and it will soon be time to share them across a variety of locations and event spaces across Scotland. If you are highly organised, creative and have a passion for getting voices heard within communities and beyond, then this may be the project for you.
