Advisory Panel Members

We are look­ing to recruit two advi­so­ry pan­el mem­bers who will help us to lead on research­ing Southampton’s hid­den histories.

At ‘a space’ arts we strive to provide opportunities for emerging artists to make new work and develop their careers, along with supporting audiences to engage and learn from high quality artistic experiences. God’s House Tower is ‘a space’ arts’ most ambitious project to date. Through inventive reimagining of the stories of Southampton’s past, GHT’s programme aims to share and celebrate our local heritage.

Gods House Tower (GHT) opened to the public in September 2019 with an ambitious programme of exhibitions and events, and a permanent exhibition telling the story of the people who occupied this iconic building in Southampton’s Old Town. With the ongoing impact of COVID 19 we have radically reviewed our core aims and activities. With funding from National Lottery Heritage Fund we are now reshaping our programme to carve out a new role for GHT in Southampton which responds to the needs of more local and more diverse audiences.

In order to do this we are looking to recruit two advisory panel members who will help us to lead on researching Southampton’s hidden histories. We are looking for people with research skills and experience using archival materials to unearth stories which a more diverse audience can engage with on a personal level. You will be supported by two other members of the group who are experienced researchers and historians in an arts context, Dr Cheryl Butler and Dr Nazneen Ahmed as well as supported by the wider ‘a space’ and GHT team.
