Museums and social inclusion: the GLLAM report

October 10, 2007

Tagged with: Social policy, Social exclusion and inclusion

This important report by the Group for Larger Local Authority Museums looks at the role that museums play in helping to create social inclusion, the social impact of museums and galleries, the principles on which the best social inclusion work is based, and, via case studies and “cameos”, highlights some examples of good practice. It also focuses on the activities that need to take place to create inclusive working, including: risk-taking; networking and building partnerships; being flexible; community consultation, involvement and empowerment; accountability; and advocacy.
