Museums are uniquely placed to deal with issues of cultural diversity and distinctiveness, history and traditions. The resources that National Museums NI hold on behalf of everybody can help unlock creativity, inspire people and contribute to fostering positive community identity.
We are committed to providing programmes for the widest possible audiences and have worked in partnership with a range of organisations over the past number of years to develop and deliver programmes for a range of non-traditional audiences.
Our Social Inclusion Programme works with people in the most socially and economically disadvantaged areas of Northern Ireland.Participants in this programme consistently report that museum engagement delivers learning, creates enjoyment and provides them with inspiration. The majority of these people have not had any prior engagement with museums.
