The British Museum special event: Museum of the citizen

Partnerships are fundamental to the vision of the British Museum as a national collection – a museum of the citizen, with objects and skills accessible to the broadest audience.

This panel discussion, chaired by Dame Liz Forgan, will explore in depth how the British Museum works in partnership with 250 UK museums and galleries, the value this brings to local communities, and what future partnerships might look like.

The panel discussion will be held on Friday 4 March 2016, 18.30–20.00, tickets are now available and can be purchased on The British Museum website.
