Working with and training Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers
Thursday 28th February, 10am-4pm, The Manchester Museum
In this interactive workshop, Postgraduates/Early Career Researchers and heritage professionals will jointly explore effective ways of working together. By developing mutually beneficial partnerships, we will look at how researchers develop their engagement skills and heritage organisations make the most of researchers and the distinctive contribution contemporary research can make to their collections and spaces. There will be case studies and speakers offering perspectives from both museum and research contexts.
As part of the ‘Afterlife of Heritage Research’ training programme, seed funding is being offered to put on an event, exhibition or engagement activity by June 2013. The workshop will include time and space to work on seed funding competition proposals.
