The Council have secured match funding towards two key projects, totalling over £8m which supports Kettering’s cultural-led regeneration plans over the coming four years.
The key projects are;
a) GLaM (Alfred East Art Gallery, Library and Manor House Museum). This project is entering the final due diligence stage having secured £3m from the Getting Building Fund. Total project value is £3.94m and will deliver transformational capital works across the cluster of buildings, to be completed by March 2022. A lead project manager and associated consultants have been procured and are currently delivering against a tight timeline; and
b) High Street Heritage Action Zone (HSHAZ). Earlier this year Kettering secured funding from Historic England to deliver Kettering High Street Heritage Action Zone, this project worth £4.3m will deliver capital improvements to our historic High Street. Client-side project management and associated consultants have all been appointed and are currently delivering against a 4 year programme.
Acting as a Creative / Cultural Producer this resource will work closely with service leads, GLaM and HSHAZ (as defined within PART2 Specification) project managers to ensure service needs are met and integrated across both projects. The expectation is this resource will act as the main point of contact for GLaM within the Council and facilitate the client-side needs accordingly to ensure timescales are met. Additionally, this resource will support the HSHAZ project manager by acting as lead facilitator for the Cultural Programme (Historic England) which will involve engaging and coordinating the Cultural Consortium, leading the design and programming for a funding application, as well as, facilitating the delivery implementation should this funding application be successful.
