Improving access to collections for a wider range of people is increasingly becoming a social, political and economic reality for many museums. As the arts, culture and heritage needs of communities are prioritised, a range of possible strategies and outcomes to support this work have emerged including repatriation, decolonisation and co-creation.
Study Day: Opening Up: Creating Your Own Co-Creation Model takes place on Tuesday 29 March at the Museum of London
In this study day, led by independent Arts and Culture Consultant Stephen Welsh, you will devise your own co-creation model that responds to the needs of communities, collections and modes of collaboration. The workshop will allow you to learn from several case studies about developing and delivering co-creation policies, practice and projects. Working in small groups with a welcoming and informal atmosphere, study day participants will benefit from expert guidance and support.
