Self-guided investigation


For your case study, identify a local museum/cultural centre or site of memory in your area that has implemented a community advisory council.

Once you have made your selection, share a link to the organization’s website and summarise what you learned.

Please make sure to include:

  1. the steps involved in its creation
  2. the members profile
  3. the networks it collaborates with
  4. its decision-making structure.

If you can’t find an institution with a community advisory council in your area, then you can choose a local museum and provide a way in which they could implement a community advisory council.

Don’t forget to take a look at other learners’ investigations too.
