Working Internationally Regional Project

This article features a new opportunity for museums, galleries and heritage sites to work internationally. Information has been created by our friends at The Culture Diary.

Working International Regional Project aims to develop the long-term capacity for regional and local museums, galleries and heritage sites to work internationally. We asked Co-ordinator Dana Andrew why museums and galleries should go global and what support is out there.

What are the top three benefits for going international?

  • To raise your profile nationally and internationally
  • To build partnerships – and in doing so, share skills, knowledge and expertise
  • To get new perspectives on your current practice what other museums and galleries are doing around the world.

What has Working Internationally Regional Project done so far?

We identified the international ambitions of regional and local museums and galleries through surveys and research.  We developed workshops in response to this that explored previous experiences and included facilitated peer-to-peer learning, which we have published online.

What can we expect from you in the future?

We will continue to expand our initial research through surveying and meetings. We would love to hear from museums and galleries about obstacles they face when working internationally (get in touch here). We will also be offering a small number of international travel grants for smaller museums and galleries who want to develop new opportunities through international partnerships

To contribute to the research, or find out more about the workshops and grants get in contact with Dana Andrew here.
