“This framework has been developed to help museums understand and improve their participatory practice and community engagement. Its aim is to provide benchmarks of best practice, to showcase excellence in this field and to support museums to develop strong and sustainable connections to their communities.
The framework helps people who work in and with museums reflect and learn and to support a journey towards deeper and more sustainable community engagement and participation. It also provides a common language for museums, funders and other stakeholders.” [p2]
