Institution: University of NottinghamOver the course of the 2010/11 academic year, this AHRC-funded programme offers postgraduate researchers from the Arts & Humanities faculties of six of the East Midlands’ leading universities an opportunity to gain training and practical experience in curating part of a public programme in collaboration with Nottingham’s renowned Galleries of Justice. Postgraduate researcher participants will be offered the chance to harness elements of their research to devise and deliver 2 public engagement (PE) events with a critical/creative perspective on the permanent Crime and Punishment exhibition. This opportunity will be underpinned by an innovative programme of public engagement training and mentoring from a senior curator at GoJ, and through a new collaboration between the award-winning researcher development programme at the University of Nottingham (UoN) and the applied research and consultancy expertise in the Centre for Museum and Heritage Management at Nottingham Trent University (NTU). Participants will undertake a total of four full-days of specialist training and at least two days of mentoring. Training will focus on: project management; advanced communications skills; working with young people in schools; audience research and evaluation techniques. It will also include two half-days looking at two different exhibitions from a critical perspective and applying the skills that you have developed. This will be followed by the opportunity to work together to plan and deliver a public programme relating to the permanent ‘Crime and Punishment’ exhibition at the Galleries of Justice to two new audiences.
