Public events @ People's History Museum

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.

We receive an increasing amount of requests to work with the museum, from individuals and organisations with lots of inspiring ideas.  We are a relatively small team, and unfortunately don’t 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.  Expressions of interest will be assessed at regular 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:

  • Exhibitions and events are often programmed months, or even years in advance.  If you have an idea for an exhibition or event, then we require as much notice as possible to check availability and to maximise marketing
  • 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

You can download a handy tool kit created for community groups to use to help plan their exhibitions.
