Projects & outreach
The projects we run actively connect new audiences with our collections and exhibitions.
Projects range from our part in the Yorkshire regional Precious Cargo project, that is itself part of the national project Stories of the World (led by the Museums Libraries and Archives Council), to outreach work in Sheffield neighbours creating better understanding and awareness of active lifestyle health and well-being.
Projects we run for targeted groups (young people and communities) give participants opportunities for inspiring experiences of cultural learning.
Projects are focused on achieving positive outcomes for 2 key themes:
- Diversity & Inclusion
- Aspiration & Attainment
We work with partners in schools and extended school communities. Activity is linked to exhibitions and collections through workshops and events in community or outreach venues and through visits to our sites. Activity often creates art work and interpretation for exhibitions and displays.
