We initiate and contribute to a variety of community projects across Plymouth and beyond each year. We are also running a brand new series of engagement projects as part of our ‘Museum On Tour‘ programme that we are running while the Museum and Art Gallery building is closed for the development of the The Box, Plymouth.
If you’re running a community project that you think Plymouth Museums Galleries Archives could help with, please contact our Learning Development Officers via firstname.lastname@example.org
Our traditional craft sessions and Arts and Minds sessions continue. Over the next couple of months you can also see a Maker Memories display at venues around the city. We have a special event filled with pasty-themed fun for all ages in March! Or head to our Community Hub at House of Fraser and enjoy some free screenings of archive film footage from Plymouth and the Westcountry.
