How to get involved
Updated: 14 May 2013
We support community organisations in a variety of ways:
Skills development workshops
We offer a range of day-long training courses which equip community group staff, volunteers and artists with the skills and confidence to deliver their own projects and exhibitions.
We can run these workshops at a date to suit you as long as a minimum of 2 places are booked. Larger groups of up to 12 can book for a maximum fee of £350. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about booking.
These workshops are lead by experienced and enthusiastic staff but the new skills and knowledge you will gain from other participants is just as important.
The fee is £75 per person and includes light refreshments but not lunch.
• Research and resources: Practical course on how to conduct research within a community project or exhibition, with the focus drawing from the Collections Online database of the Museum of London.
• Project design and management: This workshop is particularly suitable for those of you who have a rough project idea in mind, but have not yet developed this into a full idea or funding application. Participants will learn about some of the key stages in planning projects - from clarifying your vision, to writing funding applications and carrying out evaluation.
• How to develop an exhibition: This workshop is aimed at groups and individuals undertaking heritage projects with an exhibition dimension, who have little or no experience of developing exhibitions. It aims to equip participants with an understanding of how to develop small exhibitions in local venues, covering concept and content development, briefing and managing a designer, and exhibition production.
Pop-Up in our Museum spaces
We offer a reduced rate for community organisations looking for a venue to run arts and heritage related activities such as workshops, pop-up displays or seminars. Please email us to find out more about the different spaces and the costs involved.
Community group visits
The Museum of London is free and welcomes your group. If you have any queries or would require support planning your visit please email us.
Continue Creating: We also run two workshops per month which use the collections and exhibitions as inspiration for activities which engage socially isolated and vulnerable adults. Contact us to find out more.
