The London Museum Development Team will work to ensure that museums have the potential to better reach and engage with existing and new audiences through exciting programmes and content onsite, offsite and online.
The team can provide direct support, training and skills sharing for museums on marketing, learning, children and young people, community engagement, and audience monitoring/evaluation.
There are a number of organisations who provide training, case studies, resources and toolkits to support museums’ work with audiences:
Across London there are a number of specific learning and engagement practitioner network groups, which support the work of staff in specific areas of engagement. This includes an early years, secondary, young people programmes manager, access and special educational needs (SEN) network. Details of these networks and who to contact to join can be found on the skills sharing page.
Between 2018 – 2022 London Museum Development will build on the work of London’s Bridge Organisation, A New Direction (AND), to encourage and support London’s non-national museums to engage with their Local Cultural Education Partnerships (LCEPs).
As part of this support the team will support AND and the current, new and emerging LCEPs in London with their work. Partnerships are made up of museums, arts centres, theatres, music venues and other arts and cultural organisations, who work together to provide a formal cultural offer to schools.
At present there are 14 current, new and emerging LCEPs across 18 London Boroughs. If your museum is situated in one of these boroughs (Barking and Dagenham; Brent; Camden; City of London; Croydon; Hackney; Hammersmith and Fulham; Haringey; Hounslow; Islington; Kensington and Chelsea; Lambeth; Merton; Newham; Redbridge; Richmond upon Thames; Southwark; and Westminster) and you’d like to find out more about the programme and partnership in your area, please contact London Museum Development: [email protected] / 020 7001 9831.
