Museums Change Lives – Case Studies
The MA is looking for new Case Studies for the Museums Change Lives campaign. Do you have an excellent project or piece of work that is delivering social impact? All suggestions would be appreciated; though the MA is particularly looking for projects for the ‘Better Places’ and ‘People and Ideas’ sections, which focus on place-making, social inclusion and inspiring contemporary and challenging ideas. They are also interested in international projects that have a social impact. If you would like to see your project included on the MA website, please contact Emma Faulkner
