Narva Arts Residency starts to develop an education strategy and is looking for a HEAD OF EDUCATION PROGRAMMING

Narva Art Residency NART is looking for an education specialist to develop a programme of activities for schools, adult groups and exhibition visitors. This is a fresh direction for NART, which we can build up with a new person. The educational activities will draw on the existing exhibition programme, the work of the artists and the historic building itself.
