Seminar on embedding community participation

The benefits for museums of working with communities are many – from diversifying audiences and workforces, to introducing new voices and perspectives.

But is this work creating real change for organisations, the partners they work with and lives of the people they serve?

From co-curation and other participatory practice, to projects that look to create organisational change, this one-day seminar examines how museums can ensure community engagement work is sustainable, embedded and does not draw on participants’ experiences or skills without giving something back.

Delegates learn about the different approaches to funding, engaging and working with local communities, with speakers sharing the challenges and lessons from recent projects.

The day interrogates the way museums approach this type of work, with opportunities for delegates to discuss the issues and consider their own practice.

A programme for the event will be available in due course.
