Collaborations | The museum has spaces available for community groups or individuals wishing to display or produce an exhibition or event.

At PHM we have an exciting programme of exhibitions, events and learning sessions that engage audiences with our stories and collections at the home of ideas worth fighting for.

Community exhibitions

The People’s History Museum (PHM) has two exhibition spaces available for community groups or individuals wishing to display or produce an exhibition.  The 2018 community exhibition programme is finalised, however we are currently looking for groups or individuals to work with us in 2019.

If you are interested in having an exhibition at the museum, find out more about the spaces available and the theme for the 2019 programme.

Community events, projects and other partnerships

We receive a large quantity of requests to work with the museum, from individuals and organisations with lots of inspiring ideas.  We are a relatively small team and unfortunately do not have the resources to work with everyone who gets in touch.

To make the process fair and transparent, we ask that you complete an Expression of Interest Form so we can assess your initial ideas.  These proposals will be assessed at monthly programme meetings.  If your idea fits with our planned programming, a member of the Programme Team will get in touch to discuss your idea and request more information to assess whether we have the capacity to work with you.

Please bear in mind the following:

  • Community events, projects and partnerships are programmed months and sometimes years in advance.  If you have an idea, then we require as much notice as possible to check availability
  • We will not programme anything without a clear, defined target audience and a clear plan on how to reach this audience
  • Programmes must adhere to the concept of equal opportunities taking into account physical and intellectual access
