The Migration Museum Project is excited to be coordinating the Migration Museums Network.
This network is generously funded by Arts Council England and Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
This network aims to increase and improve outputs associated with migration and related themes in museums and galleries across the UK. This is vital at a time when migration is front page news almost daily. How do we as a sector effectively respond to this?
The network focuses on sharing best practice, highlighting case studies and facilitating partnerships across the sector.
We created an online survey about migration themes in our sector earlier this year which was widely circulated and completed. Many thanks to those who participated. The results of this survey will soon be available on our website.
We had our first event at the British Museum on Friday October 6. The feedback from the 80 delegates was very positive. Thank you to all those who contributed and participated. The next event bringing people together to learn, share best practice and gain in confidence on working with migration themes will be at The Discovery Museum in Newcastle-upon-Tyne on Tuesday October 31. Please spread the word and register for the Newcastle event here.
