On Working with Offenders: Opening Minds, Awakening Emotions

MuseumsEtc Collection  

On Working With Offenders forms part of Museum Futures, a new collection of books which explores contemporary - often challenging - issues confronting museums and galleries in a concise and practical way.

Many museums and galleries include in their aims the inclusion and engagement of the wider community. Few extend this to include offenders. This collection will help you explore the rewarding and inspiring opportunities which working with offenders can provide. In On Working With Offenders, highly-regarded institutions including the Clark Art Institute and Stirling University’s Art Collection share their experience and provide the insights and advice you need to:
1 Avoid challenging behaviour and risks to your collection and staff.
2 Enable offenders to engage with, and feel confident in looking at, your collections.
3 Use your collection as a vehicle for thinking, writing or creating about human experience.
4 Treat offenders as your most valued visitors.
5 Provide powerful, inspiring, life-changing outcomes.
