LEARNING MORE ABOUT NEW AUDIENCES

Delegates attending ABTEM’s late spring seminar at the Museum of Liverpool on Friday 28th were provided with a fascinating and inspiring day. Dr Jo Reilly, Head of Participation and Learning at the Heritage Lottery Fund gave us a good insight into the process of researching and writing activity plans and weaving in community involvement to our projects. Claire Weston (National Motor Museum Trust) highlighted the work being done on the museum’s ‘Caravans and Charabancs’¬†First World War community project (http://www.nationalmotormuseum.org.uk/caravans_charabancs) and Sharon Brown outlined two community projects undertaken at the museum of Liverpool, the restoration of Liverpool Tramcar No.245 and the¬†development exhibition content, research, collection knowledge and talks with the Retired Carters Association. Copies of presentations should be available in the next few months.
