Description

How can the cultural sector respond to the Referendum?

Understanding Different Beliefs / Finding Shared Values

This Happy Museum workshop will explore the neuroscience and psychology behind the referendum debate and consider what might be learnt for the role of museums and cultural organisations in building connection and social capital in their communities.

We will explore the neuroscience and psychology behind the referendum debate and consider what might be learnt to inform the role of museums and cultural organisations in building connection and social capital in their communities.

The workshop will consider the experiences that shape our decisions, and explore ways to relate to people who voted differently. The format of the day will allow ample time for discussion, debate and consideration of our role and that of our organisations.

It brings together thinking from neuropsychologist Kris De Meyer in relation to the psychology of the referendum and how in building our beliefs we may have become more divided. Meanwhile Tom Crompton of Common Cause investigates our values and considers what we share, as well as what divides us.

The event will be hosted by Tony Butler (Director Derby Museums) and Nat Edwards (Heritage Museums Consultant and previously National Trust for Scotland).

We are charging a limited fee to cover our costs - but if the fee will prevent you from attending please get in touch with at happymuseumproject@gmail.com to discuss concessions.
