Public Engagement Visit to the Museum of London

1st April 2022, from 10am to 4:15pm. Morning session at Museum of London Wall, Afternoon session at Museum of London Docklands

Course description

The day will introduce approaches to engagement with a range of audiences. It gives students an opportunity to visit both the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands to see the practical side of different forms of public engagement, and meet staff who have worked on their development. 

A core aspect of public engagement is its audience. In developing a public engagement project it is necessary to consider various questions around audience. Who is your audience? Why do you want to engage with this specific audience? What are their interests and needs, and how might you need to design the engagement to take these into account? Are there particular ethical, legal or practical considerations you need to consider, e.g. when engaging with at risk or marginalised audiences? And how can you ensure that the engagement is equitable and inclusive?
