The Communities team engages marginalised, vulnerable and potentially excluded community groups and individuals with National Museums Liverpool’s collections. This could be through social status, poverty, mental illness, seeking refuge, Black and Minority Ethnic, disability, gender, age and sexual orientation.

We work with audiences new to museums and build strong relationships with local communities in Liverpool and Merseyside. We work flexibly, developing both one-off activities and longer term projects, using educational and creative techniques. We work across all of the venues, as well as in community settings as part of our outreach provision. We also manage a programme of community exhibitions for our venues.

Read about some of our recent work on the projects pages.

In addition we engage diverse audiences through local and national initiatives such as Slavery Remembrance Day, Refugee Week, Learning Disabilities Week, Black History Month and International Women’s Day.
