Working International Regional Project aims to develop the long-term capacity for regional and local museums, galleries and heritage sites to work internationally. We asked Co-ordinator Dana Andrew why museums and galleries should go global and what support is out there.
What are the top three benefits for going international?
What has Working Internationally Regional Project done so far?
We identified the international ambitions of regional and local museums and galleries through surveys and research. We developed workshops in response to this that explored previous experiences and included facilitated peer-to-peer learning, which we have published online.
What can we expect from you in the future?
We will continue to expand our initial research through surveying and meetings. We would love to hear from museums and galleries about obstacles they face when working internationally (get in touch here). We will also be offering a small number of international travel grants for smaller museums and galleries who want to develop new opportunities through international partnerships
Working towards a South West where talented artists thrive, and a resilient and connected visual arts ecology that inspires more engaged and diverse audiences to value and advocate for its work.
