Sharon Heal, the director of the Museums Association, travels to Belfast to meet Agrippa Njanina, a community engagement officer at National Museums Northern Ireland.
Agrippa has more than 15 years of experience in the non-profit, education and community sectors, specialising in ethics and community engagement. At National Museums NI, he plays a vital role in coordinating and facilitating the Global Voices Local Choices programme across six museums in Northern Ireland. He is also a member of the MA’s Ethics Committee.
Agrippa tells Sharon why Belfast is a special place for him, how he is working with local museums, the importance of social impact, and the impact of colonial legacies on Northern Ireland today.
