Our Museums | Inclusion | Engagement conference, held in London, was a unique sharing of experiences between leading museum professionals and an influential international audience. Delegates’ response to the event was outstandingly positive, and we’ve now made the content widely accessible by releasing it on CD.
Here’s what delegates said who experienced the occasion:
- excellent and inspiring speakers with a wide range of expertise;
- information on the long-term impact of projects was particularly valuable;
- the very clear session on evaluation was particularly pertinent;
- very interesting to hear the radical approach to putting the power of interpretation in the hands of the community;
- the speakers talked honestly around the challenges they face;
- a real variety of experiences and approaches – both interesting and useful;
- enjoyed learning from other’s experiences – reassuring and inspiring for my work.
The Museums | Inclusion | Engagement CD includes audio recordings, Powerpoint presentations and films – around five hours of practical information to help your museum engage with, and meaningfully involve, your diverse communities. The presentations include some of the most successful and advanced experience in this field currently available anywhere.
