Museums, Crisis, and Covid19 @UlsterResMuseum / 31 Aug
UKRI Rapid Response project
This UKRI Rapid Response project focuses on how museums can contribute to community resilience and wellbeing in a time of crisis.
It addresses sector adaptability as it adjusts audience engagement and collaboration (such as new collecting practices, programming and exhibitions) in response to Covid-19.
Museums, Crisis and Covid-19: Project Outcomes
Our project, with thanks to the time and input given from people across the museum sector, has produced a set of final reports. These three reports relate to each of our work packages (see below) and include a set of recommendations for the sector. As the focus of the sector turns away from the Covid-19 pandemic and towards continued concerns around the climate emergency, cost of living increases, and the impact of changing working practices on the sector, it is our hope that these reports provide a platform from which future museums policies can be built.
While our project has now concluded, we continue to engage with the museum sector as we look to future collaborations and research projects.
Our blog page will continue to be updated, so keep an eye out for further contributions from within the project team and from museums colleagues in Northern Ireland.
