Making the Museum a more sociable space (c) Ian Wallman

Welcome to the Ashmolean for All blog.

Ashmolean for All is about improving the way the Museum represents, works with and includes diverse communities and individuals – existing visitors, potential visitors, staff and volunteers. It is a central focus of the Ashmolean Museum’s Strategic Plan 2018–23.

As an ‘umbrella strategy’, Ashmolean for All will inform and become embedded in every aspect of the Museum’s work, from the presentation of our displays, programmes and partnerships, to workplace culture and operational policies. We will be doing things in a different way.

This blog documents our work on Ashmolean for All and shares and reflects on our learning and experiences along the way.
