Museums & Galleries Edinburgh learning, equalities and community engagement survey

Closed 30 Aug 2021

Opened 21 Jun 2021


Museums & Galleries Edinburgh is a collection of 13 varied and fascinating venues owned and managed by the City of Edinburgh Council.

We look after the following venues: City Art Centre, Museum of Edinburgh (previously Huntly House),The People’s Story Museum, The Writers’ Museum, Lauriston Castle, Museum of Childhood, Travelling Gallery, Queensferry Museum, Museum Collections Centre, Scott and Nelson Monuments.

We run a varied learning and community engagement programme. Following the Covid outbreak we are looking to consult communities about how we can support their work, be more inclusive and better respond to community needs.

Why your views matter

This consultation will help us to shape the future of our learning, engagement and inclusion work. We are developing a new Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) plan and a Learning and Engagement framework. We would love to hear your views on where you think our priorities should lie.

The Equalities plan will set priorities for how we will action our anti-racism pledge and make our service more inclusive. The Learning framework will enable us to take a strategic approach to our learning and engagement work, setting out our priorities and target audiences
