Collaborate SE - Network Meeting

Tuesday 20th May 2014

Brighton Museum, Education Pavilion

Tuesday 20 May 2014, 1.00 pm - 4.00 pm


The meetings are an opportunity for you to:

  • hear about work with young people across region via short case studies
  • share your work with young people during an open forum session
  • feed back on where the Network will go next
  • apply for funding to support your work with young people.

Collaborate SE has emerged from the South East’s participation in the Cultural Olympiad Project Stories of the World (2009 – 2012).  Funding has been secured from Artswork/SE Bridge to develop the network of museums that emerged as a result of participation. The Network is lead by Royal Pavilion Museums and supported by a steering group of Museum Development Officers, previous project partners and Oxford Aspire.

The funding will enable the Network to develop beyond the partner museums involved in Stories of the World by supporting:

  • 4 network meetings, one in each of the 4 sub-regions in the SE - to share and disseminate museums work with young people
  • the creation of 5 case studies demonstrating the range and scope of work of museums in the SE
  • development of the presence of the Network on the SEMDP website
  • a small challenge fund to support Network members to develop their work with young people through CPD opportunities.

Please contact Sonia Rasbery, SE Collaborate Network Coordinator via for a booking form.
