The Fitzwilliam Museum
Trainer: Katrina Siliprandi (Museum Learning & Development Consultant)
Increasingly, funders and policy makers expect museums to achieve greater social outcomes and impact by reaching out to different audiences. This course will look at case studies of some of the work that is currently taking place across the region, focussing on people with dementia, young offenders, homeless people, people with autism, looked after children and foster carers. The course will give participants the opportunity to reflect on why these projects have been successful and how to make the knowledge and understanding gained relevant in their own museum.
By the end of the course participants will:
- have enhanced their understanding of how to work with different audiences, especially those groups requiring more insightful engagement
- have greater understanding of the fundamental importance of partnership working; especially its essential role with groups where engagement might initially prove difficult
- be inspired, motivated and better equipped to extend their audiences
- have developed their personal skills and confidence in future application of new knowledge gained from the course
- have improved personal knowledge of other museums engaging in different partnerships to whom they might look for support with their own practice
- have had the opportunity to network with local and regional museum practitioners
- have had the precious opportunity to reflect on their own practice and what the next steps in their personal development might be.
Refreshments and a sandwich lunch will be provided for delegates.
This event is fully booked.
