The New Museum Community

The New Museum Community published by Museumsetc examines in depth how museums globally are succeeding – in many different ways – in reaching and involving social groups traditionally overlooked or excluded from the museum experience. The New Museum Community: Audiences, Challenges, Benefits is an invaluable and inspiring guide for any museum, gallery or cultural organisation – large or small – intent on engaging with the broadest possible audience.

I have written two essays: Planning for Young Children and Families in Museums and Creating Exhibitions With and For Children.

This is the beginning of a longer project where we will produce an interactive and immersive artwork which can be enjoyed by the school and the community.
