Workshop Description: Museums and galleries have long hosted artists in residence, it’s a successful format that helps shine new light on collections, generate new stories, and attract new audiences. In this workshop we will explore how this model can be adopted to develop stronger links between museums and the creative industries. From New Museum (New York), to Craft NI (Belfast) we will examine what makes a successful model for collaboration with creative entrepreneurs. Through a range of practical activities, workshop participants will develop a collaborative concept fit for their institution to take forward. The aim of this workshop is catalyse new thinking and start a conversation about how museums can support the creative industries.
