The National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) are delighted to invite you to join colleagues at a museum-university partnership symposium that is being delivered as part of the ACE funded MUPI project at Friends House, London on Thursday, November 2nd - 11:00am to 3:30pm.
The Museum-University Partnership Initiative (MUPI) seeks to develop mutually beneficial partnerships between small museums and university academics. We believe that there is lots of potential in museums and universities working together, and are keen to help support new partnerships and initiatives. Over the last 8 months we have been running MUPI Match events, offering opportunities for museums and universities to develop partnerships, and over 70 projects have been initiated across the UK.
In addition to the MUPI Match events we are developing resources to support others wanting to develop museum-university partnerships. This symposium is an opportunity for museum staff and volunteers and academics to come together to:
- Celebrate and share great examples of partnership working
- Inform the development of resources to help support effective partnership working including navigating funding; matchmaking potential partners; and tools for partnership development
- Explore what else needs to happen to encourage mutually beneficial museum-university partnerships now and in the future
Whether you have years of experience, or are just getting started, why not come and join us?
