People Power: Embedding Community Participation

Wednesday 12 September 2018


One Day Seminar/Conference

Study Mode




Museums Association One-Day Conference

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 will examine how museums can ensure community engagement work is sustainable, embedded and does not draw on participants’ experiences or skills without giving something back. 

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

The day runs from 1045 - 1700.
