Birmingham Museums Trust is embarking on a rare and exciting opportunity to explore, interrogate, and respond to the vision, ethos, and overall approach for a unique and innovative new museum for Birmingham around the subjects of Science and Industry, but more than that, around the people of Birmingham.
The vision is emerging from a series of creative conversations among Birmingham Museums Trust’s senior leadership team, with some external input, to consider what a genuinely radical, audience-centred mass-participation city museum project for Birmingham might look like. It proposes a substantial re-imagining of every aspect of the conventional museum model:
- To develop approaches to community engagement, research and consultation to help inform evidence based decision-making and meaningful long term delivery partnerships
- To develop innovative solutions to engage and connect with a range of neighbourhoods and key stakeholders across Birmingham
- To design and implement effective evaluation techniques to support service delivery across the study.
- To deliver engagement and consultation as far as is possible within the time period available – three key neighbourhoods have been identified to begin this process with.
- Create a roadmap for long term delivery.
