3 Weeks to Deadline: ITP Newsletter 2018

Written by Claire Messenger, International Training Programme Manager

Dear ITP Fellows,

I just wanted to remind you all that the deadline for submissions for the 5th newsletter of the International Training Programme is 31st January 2018 so you have three weeks to get any news, views and stories to us so they can be shared by our global network.

Inspired by our workshop in Armenia, our 2018 newsletter will focus on the themes of learning and engagement in the museum sector and we’d like to hear from any of our fellows about their experiences in their institutions.


Learning, Engagement and Museums Workshop, Yerevan, Armenia, October 2016

We’d very much welcome submissions on any or all of the topics below:

LEARNING AND ENGAGEMENT – telling us how your museum currently engages with its audiences

YOUR COLLECTION IN FOCUS – highlighting an object in your museum/gallery that you see as a potential catalyst for engaging with a new audience or that could be a focus for a new and exciting public programme

GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES – “Why should cultural institutions seek to engage new audiences with inspiring, exciting and motivational experiences? What impact do you foresee these having on the future of your museum/gallery?”

And more generally:

DID YOU KNOW THAT? – tell us something we may not already know about the cultural sector in your country

BULLETIN BOARD – what is happening in your institution?

GLOBAL NETWORK NEWS – your personal and professional updates

Last year we were delighted to receive over 20 submissions from Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Kenya, Lebanon, Nigeria, Palestine, Turkey and Uganda – this year we’d love to have even more! Looking forward to hearing from you!
