Creating Meaningful and Inclusive Museum Practices

It also encouraged a reflection on the challenges faced by institutions and practitioners. The participants could broaden their perspective on the role of contemporary museums in community engagement and equip themselves with the skills to develop meaningful and inclusive museum projects.
