The Happy Museum Workshop

Special event

Tue 5th March, Woodhorn Museum

Connecting with Community around Environmental Concerns – Workshop

Museums have found many ways to connect with their communities around environmental concerns – tackling subjects as diverse as resource use and wasteenergylocal planning,  air pollution and more.  Building these connections has the potential to contribute to the wellbeing and resilience as well as the environmental sustainability of both museums and their communities.

This workshop offers the chance to hear practical examples and experiences from Happy Museum’s community of practice including Museums NorthumberlandDerby Museums and Manchester University Museum and to explore ideas to take back to your own work context.

The workshop includes an opportunity to see the former colliery site transformed by the installations in Coal Forest inspired our ongoing & complex relationship with coal.
