Question and answer session

duration 0-19-24

One of the key challenges for a city museum is in engaging its citizens, but how can a museum service be of relevance in on eof the poorest cities in Western Europe ? What questions does the city itself pose the museum service, and how does it respond ? How can the function of a museum be extended beyond teh museum walls to address the needs of the citizens ? Glasgow Museums have been actively engaging with issues of social justice for around 15 years, and Morag examines how the museum service aims to encourage community engagement, looking at how this in turn is changing and challenging the museum service
