Islamic Art and Material Culture SSN
The SSN for Islamic Art and Material Culture is for museum professionals to share ideas, expertise and best practice in using their collections from regions where Islam was, or is the dominant religion.
We work with museums to provide specialist support packages and programmes of professional skills development that facilitate collections development and audience engagement to effect long-term and sustainable change.
By developing partnerships we enable active communities for those working with Islamic art and material culture in UK museums
Study days develop museum professionals, while encouraging knowledge exchange and active learning through presentations, participatory group activities and discussion
Specialist Support Schemes
The scheme develops institution’s understanding of their Islamic art collections, supports knowledge exchange between staff and volunteers, and builds their engagement with both existing and new audiences
