Job Vacancy: Curator of Learning


An exciting opportunity has now arisen for a creative and experienced Curator of Learning with the IAF.

We seek a dynamic, experienced and highly motivated individual for the role of Curator of Learning to work across the IAF’s varied learning programme.

The IAF’s educational remit has developed a strong trajectory of work engaging schools and communities across Ireland in architecture, design and place-making.  Projects like A Space For Learning led to the long established Architects in Schools initiative, which reaches 30 schools across the country through workshops and a learning resource pack in print and online. Place Shapers and the current Play Park Ballyfermot are projects that place young people and the community at the heart of the design process and make real change in the built environment. Further complimentary programs have included Open House Junior for young people and families the Beyond Participation Conference, developing a Youth Collective and the BT Young Scientist Award for architecture, all of which aimed to excite a diverse audience about the cultural value of architecture.  

The Irish Architecture Foundation’s vision is a future where architecture is a civic right, fundamental to the fabric of life, culture and history, and is a confident expression of who we are and who we might become.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a team of dedicated, creative people all sharing a mutual passion for architecture, art, design and its intersection with the public. In a few short years, we have situated architecture firmly within the cultural context, popularised it through Open House Dublin, inspired young minds through our schools programme, encouraged people to think differently about their cities and towns, and enhanced the practice of architecture through mutually beneficial exchanges between architects and the public.

The role of Curator of Learning is offered as a Full-Time, Permanent position (following a 6 month probation period).
