How do you build trusting and purposeful relationships with stakeholders and keep their engagement for the long term? In this study workshop you will look at a range of engagement practices and frameworks with examples of participation centred on ethos of equity, care and empowerment to serve communities.
You will be led through a process of planning your engagement and participation approach, devising appropriate strategies that meet the values, creative and social mission and purpose of your organisation. You will explore what being a purpose-led organisation means from vision, strategy into an action plan.
Building Equitable Participation: A Durational Approach to Engagement
Study Day, 3 May, Museum of London
“The civic role of museums in the 21st century needs to be rooted in purpose and usefulness to social developments and social justice. I see museums as super connectors and super generators for positive social actions. When we choose to, we can ensure that everyone who engages with our organisation exchanges values, experiences growth – of ideas, relationships and meaning, wellbeing and belonging” — Thanh Sinden.
