The Art of Partnering [LINK]
The art of partnering is the final report of a King's College London Cultural Enquiry in collaboration with the BBC, which explored the role partnership plays in enabling publicly funded cultural institutions to enhance the quality and diversity of their work across the UK.
This was the third Cultural Enquiry from King's and a major new initiative at a time when partnership is embedding as a way of working across the cultural sector, including working internationally. NMDC's Katie Childs was an Advisor on the research project, which identified twelve characteristics of partnerships and concluded that whilst the cultural sector is enthusiastic about working in partnership, there is limited evaluation and comparatively few digital partnerships.
Museum case studies from the research include the Cornwall Museums Partnership, the First World War Centenary Partnership, and the V&A Photography Curators Training Programme.
The full report, methodology, questionnaire, round table and interview questions, as well as the snapshot case studies, can be downloaded from the King's College London website.
