British Council, in collaboration with MALI, invited professionals from the museum sector in the U.K to share their expertise in a series of workshops at MALI.

Museums should be relevant to their communities. The areas, people and collections have the potential to be the ideal catalyst to attract the community, manage audiences, building on social cohesion and facilitate dialogue.
