Speakers: Liberty Melly, Head of Learning and Tia Shah, Learning Officer, Migration Museum and Emily Shepperson, Exhibition and Interpretation Officer and Mandy Rawlins, Community and Learning Officer, Suffolk Archives

Cultural heritage organisations can play a pivotal role in engaging learners on themes of migration, and contribute to a much broader movement that deepens societal understanding of migration’s integral role in our shared heritage. But in an evolving educational landscape, how can museums best support and foster collaboration between cultural organisations, schools and communities? Join the Migration Museums expert learning team, to hear their experiences and insights into their story-led, discursive approach, demonstrating how it engages learners and empowers them to explore their personal connections to the topic. Then hear from staff at Suffolk Archives about their current NLHF funded project Arrivals: Celebrating Migration to Suffolk, exploring, collecting, and co-curation. 
 
This would be relevant for organisations interested in exploring topics of migration, refugees, or cultural diversity in their local area, learning teams looking to support a growing need from schools and teachers, and those looking to widen their audience engagement to include a more diverse community.
