This may look like an informal coffee break but the people around this table are actually helping to shape the future of our museums. Community consultation co-ordinator Helen Robinson has been holding a series of these meetings to tell people about plans for the new Museum of Liverpool and get them involved with some of the decisions about what will go on display there.
Helen is keen to meet up with community groups from all over Merseyside involved and is planning more consultation meetings for later this year. If you would like to get involved you can send Helen an email or ring her on 0151 478 4003.
There's another opportunity to discuss the plans for the new museum at a free Port City public forum next Wednesday, 3 October, 6-8pm at Merseyside Maritime Museum. The forum aims to address questions such as whether Liverpool is still perceived as a port city and how have the docks shaped the city. With contributions from Dr Adrian Jarvis, Professor WR Lee and Tony Lane from the University of Liverpool and Linda McDermott from BBC Radio Merseyside, this should be an interesting discussion.
