How to Deliver Co-creation Projects in Your Museum — 28 February 2023

© Stephen Welsh

Learn how to develop and deliver co-creation policies, practice and projects in your museum. In this study day you will gain first-hand experience from hands-on practice-based sessions and walk away with actionable next steps that you can take back to your museum.

Working in small groups with a welcoming and supportive atmosphere, you will benefit from expert advice and guidance and will have the opportunity to devise your own co-creation models that respond practically to museum scenarios involving communities, collections and collaboration.

Places on this study day are limited to help create the most engaging and productive learning experience for participants.
