• To assist Store Move preparation by making crates and slotted case to standard specified by Head of Collection to accommodate future collection care and move activities
• To support all Arts Council Collections Activities and the Store Move to Coventry
• To support the Collection Survey for the Store Move

About the Arts Council Collection
Since 1986 the Arts Council Collection has been managed by the Southbank Centre on behalf of Arts Council England, safeguarding the Collection for future generations.

The Arts Council Collection has been a pioneering force in British Art since the 1940s. From its inception in 1946 with its aim of promoting and encouraging the appreciation of contemporary art through touring exhibitions, it has stayed true to its original objective, continuing to grow, acquiring innovative works each year and sharing these as widely as possible. Our vision continues, supporting artists and inspiring the widest audiences with ‘everyone’s’ Arts Council Collection of modern and contemporary British Art.

Today, we have over 8,000 works by close to 2,200 artists that include work from artists from a range of backgrounds and disciplines – most often at an early stage of their careers. From multi-part installations to performance, painting, sculpture and moving image, the works that enter the Collection are representative of the best and most ambitious modern and contemporary British art made in the UK. We continue to bring art to every corner of the country through loans and exhibitions to museums, galleries, schools, hospitals and other public institutions, alongside learning and engagement and collection research.
