How can museums and heritage organisations support forced migrants settling in the UK?
How does this develop more inclusive working practices and programmes?
How does cross-sectoral partnerships develop mutual beneficial opportunities for all stakeholders?
The award-winning Multaka-Oxford project is running a networking day to bring together the heritage sector, organisations working with forced migrants, volunteers and the voluntary sector. The day will focus on sharing our experiences and learning to help develop best practice.
It will look at access to, and the benefits of, cross-sectoral partnerships and how they provide opportunities in cultural and heritage spaces for forced migrants to volunteer for work experience and wellbeing whilst reflecting on how this develops more inclusive working practice and programmes.
With a focus on the value of volunteering for employability and wellbeing there will be talks and skills-share workshops from: – Multaka volunteers (Multaka-Oxford, Pitt Rivers Museum and History of Science Museum) – Refugee Resource (Oxford) – Connection Support (Oxford) – Oxfam Future Skills Programme (Oxford) – Aspire (Oxford) – The Wallace Collection (London) – Migration Museum (London)
Refreshments and a light lunch are included.
