We're Hiring! Common Ground Project Manager Vacancy


Common Ground is a Norfolk & Norwich Festival 250 Project that connects young people with their local heritage through the arts. From 2020 to 2023 the project will engage creatively and digitally with young people across East Anglia, providing opportunities for 13–25-year-olds to take part in events, projects, skills development, leadership training and paid traineeships.

We intend for Common Ground to achieve long-term impact and aim to achieve our goals by carefully listening to all parties involved, from participants through to our partnership board.
