Inspiring Action: Museums And Social Change (A Collection Of Essays)

£39.99

Product description

In this groundbreaking book, leading museum professionals contribute practical and inspiring essays on how their institutions are responding to the social challenges of the 21st century: helping rehabilitate young offenders; reskilling long-term unemployed people; providing new enjoyment for the elderly; working alongside disadvantaged minorities. The case studies in this book share pioneering museum experience from the UK, USA, Australia and Africa. They explore the theory and practice of building social inclusion into museum and gallery programmes. They are powerful, moving - and an inspiration to action. Among the institutions whose programmes feature in the book's information-packed 320 pages are: Tate Modern, Victoria & Albert Museum, Royal Armouries, Tower of London, Clarke Art Institute, Williamstown, USA, Weeksville Heritage, Brooklyn, USA, Museum Victoria, Melbourne, Australia, Durban Art Gallery, South Africa.

This 2009 paperback first edition is in a very good, used condition. The cover shows a few minor signs of shelf-wear but the text is clean, bright and free from annotation.

Oxfam Bookshop Hexham

We relocated in January 2016 to larger premises and are now able to offer a wider range of books and music (you can come and check out your musical choices in our listening booth and also find out a lot more about Oxfam's work.). We have a new local interest section, more space for history and have extended our craft and arts offer.  We also sell cards, fair trade food and ethical cleaning and beauty products.

Hexham is a market town situated in the beautiful Tyne Valley - the ideal stopping off point before exploring Hadrian's Wall, Chesters, Housesteads and the Temple of Mithras at Carrawburgh.
