If you passionate about making your local museum for everyone and would you like to help make the museum’s programme and collection more representative of all local residents, why not join our focus groups.
‘No Borders’ project
As part of the ground-breaking ‘No Borders’ project we are looking for local residents to take part in 2 new focus groups this summer. We want to involve the local community in ensuring the work of the museum is accessible and relevant to all local people.
This project aims to support the 3 museums to develop sustainable, inspiring services for the future. Attracting new and more diverse audiences and increasing accessibility for all is an important part of this work.
Museum access focus group
This focus group will look at issues surrounding access to the museum’s services, including physical, sensory and intellectual access. If you live in the Epping Forest district and have a disability or represent / work with residents with additional needs, and would like to help us improve access for all, please get in touch.
Museum focus group
The second focus group will look at bringing together Epping Forest district residents who define themselves as being of black, Asian or minority ethnic background. This focus group will help the museum ensure future exhibitions, events and the objects collected reflect the diversity of local residents.
About the focus groups
There will be 2 focus groups. Each will last approximately 2 hours. Before meeting you will be sent the current museum events programme and pre-visit information to look through. All participants will receive a £15 ‘Love2Shop’ voucher to say thank you for your time.
- Please register your interest by Friday 26 May 2017. The dates for the focus group to be confirmed
- The groups will meet at Epping Forest District Museum, 39–41 Sun Street, Waltham Abbey, EN9 1EL
