The V&A Dundee programme is delivered by a site-based programme team, in collaboration with teams across the museum.
This is an exciting opportunity to initiate V&A Dundee’s exhibition touring programme as the museum looks to develop its international role and reach. This post has a particular focus on developing plans for an international tour of ‘Tartan’, the first blockbuster exhibition to be curated by the museum. The Touring Exhibitions Manager is responsible for developing the tour model to deliver Tartan, seeking and confirming venues and the overall organisational management and delivery of the tour. The post-holder will work closely with the Head of Exhibitions to develop and deliver V&A Dundee’s touring exhibition programme more broadly, setting up core processes and systems.
