What is the relationship today between museums, galleries and learning? The Responsive Museum interrogates the thinking, policies and practices that underpin the educational role of the museum. It unravels the complex relationship of museums with their publics, and discusses today's challenges and the debates that have resulted. The highly experienced team of writers, including museum educators and directors, share their different experiences and views, and review recent research and examples of best practice. They analyse the implications of audience development and broadening public access, particularly in relation to special groups, minority communities and disabled people, and for individual self-development and different learning styles; they explore issues of public accountability and funding; discuss the merits of different evaluation tools and methodologies for measuring audience impact and needs; and assess the role of architects, designers and artists in shaping the visitor experience. The latter part of this book reviews practical management and staffing issues, and training and skills needs for the future. This book is for students, museum staff, especially those involved in education and interpretation, and senior management and policy-makers. This is a much-needed review of the relationship between museums and galleries and their users. It also offers a wealth of information and expertise to guide future strategy and practice.

This is the first book to examine, in depth, the multi-million pound redisplay and reinterpretation process in British museums in the early twenty-first century. Acknowledging the importance of the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) as project catalyst, Hannah Paddon explains and explores the complex process, from the initial stages of project conceptualisation to the final stages of museum re-opening and exhibition evaluation. She also provides an in-depth look, using three case study museums, at the factors which shape each museum redisplay project including topics such as museum architecture, government agendas and the exhibition team. Finally, the book offers discussions and conclusions around pitfalls and successes and thoughts about the future of collection redisplay.

Public Affairs for Journalists is a punchy and practical introduction to all aspects of central and local government. It provides journalism students with all the information they will need to cover public affairs confidently. The text starts with the emergence of Britain's constitution, the changing role of the monarchy and the origins of parliamentary democracy. It goes on to explore the roles of individual departments of state, such as the Treasury, and recent moves away from 'biggovernment' towards more commercially driven forms of public service delivery. It also looks at Britain's position in the world with chapters on the EU and IR. The second half of the book examines the evolution of the present-day council framework. It explores the complexities of local government finance and explores the roles of elected councillors, emergency services and individual departments. The book concludes by looking at the Freedom of Information Act. Public Affairs for Journalistsis accompanied by an Online Resource Centre, which includes: For Students: Regular updates Web links

Museum theatre can be one of the most effective and rewarding programs your institution ever undertakes, and it can be one of the most challenging! Some institutions shy away from theatre because it seems too foreign to their mission, while others take it on enthusiastically but with little understanding of its demands. In Exploring Museum Theatre Tessa Bridal, one of the leading experts in the field, helps bridge these gaps and leads you along the path to a successful museum theatre program. She covers the philosophical and historical background including how to find your style, developing your first program, costs and funding, working with actors, directors, and other professionals, technical issues, evaluations, promotion, presenting difficult issues, collaborations, and historic interpretation. Appendixes and a bibliography round out this excellent reference.
