Publications:
Main Document 1.72 MB

2005

The aim of this toolkit is to provide a practical resource to help understand the concepts of community involvement, to provide background information and guidance on developing community involvement within museums, libraries are archives, and to provide resource banks for working with specific community groups e.g. asylum seeker and refugee audiences. Throughout 2004 2008 a series of additional resources for working with travellers, prisoners and young offenders, the gayand lesbian community and many more will also be developed to accompany this toolkit.

YMLAC has been working with a range of agencies to explore and enhance the capacity of museums, libraries and archives to work with various cultural and community groups in the region. This toolkit is aimed at people working in the sector who want to improve community involvement with various groups. The toolkit is based upon research into current best practice examples and partnership working. The toolkit should be used by practitioners who will be directly engaging with the communities, and by senior managers who should act to ensure that all audience development work is mainstreamed into strategic planning. Audience development projects are more successful if they have a strong sustainability element.
