Museums and migration 2

How can museums and heritage organisations support forced migrants settling in the UK?

How does this develop more inclusive working practices and programmes?

How does cross-sectoral partnerships develop mutual beneficial opportunities for all stakeholders?

The Multaka-Oxford project are running a networking day to bring together the heritage sector, organisations working with forced migrants, volunteers and the voluntary sector to share experience and learning to develop best practice. The day will focus on access to and the benefits of cross-sectoral partnerships to provide opportunities in cultural and heritage spaces for forced migrants to volunteer for work experience and wellbeing whilst reflecting on how this develops more inclusive working practice and programmes.
