Museums Association | “All Together Now: Embedding Community Participation”

Online, one-day event exploring community engagement and more.

9 December 2021, 11:00-16:00

Museums have the power to change lives – not least through active public participation and engaging with diverse communities, sharing collections and knowledge.

The one-day event looks at how museums are engaging with underserved audiences and working with community interest groups in participatory and equitable ways. It examines the impact the Covid pandemic has had on how museums can provide a vital service for vulnerable people, and ask what the future holds for this type of work.

Attendees have the chance to hear from recent case studies showcasing different approaches and results, as well as panel discussions and workshops exploring how to create 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.

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.
