Community Engagement & Outreach
The V&A delivers a vibrant and varied programme of events and projects to inspire creativity in all of our audiences. Inspired by the museum’s diverse collections and art and design practices, our uniquely tailored programmes reach out to local community groups, address barriers to engagement and support visits for people who are new to museums. Find out more about some of our current and recent projects on our learning blog.
Museum Residency Programme
Ever wondered what it’s like inside an artist’s studio, where designers get their great ideas from, or how an artist makes their final piece? We give chosen practitioners a studio space within the Museum, usually for a six month period, and invite the public to learn about their practice through a range of different activities, workshops and open studios. Artists are also given special access to our collections and resources with the aim of inspiring them to make new and dynamic work during their residency.
