Vacancies and Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in joining the team at Woodhorn and Northumberland Archives. At the moment there are no vacancies, but you may be interested in the following opportunities.


Commission for design of Museum donation boxes

Museums and Archives Northumberland are looking to commission an artist/maker, or group of artists/makers, to design and produce four different interactive donation boxes, one for each of our diverse Northumbrian museum sites. Each box is to be designed to reflect some of the individual characteristics of the site in which it is positioned, and will be on permanent display.

You should have previous experience of delivering design within a commercial context, with skills in design and confidence in liaising with manufacturing companies, with a real passion for the project and the challenge. You will need to submit a complete budget for this project, to include a breakdown for design, production, artists' fees, delivery, travel to meetings and all expenses. As a guide, the overall budget for each box should not exceed £3,500, but we will look at particularly impressive ideas that come outside this budget.

You can apply to design and produce any or all of the individual boxes - please make this clear in your submission. For the full brief, please click here.

The deadline for submissions of interest is 10am, Friday 16 January 2015, to 

For any queries regarding this commission, please contact Jo Raw on 01670 624467 or email

This opportunity is being made possible through a grant from the Arts Council England Renaissance Strategic Support Fund.
