Inclusive space and ethical interpretation

Calke abbey

Inclusive Space and Ethical Interpretation brings together a body of research that focuses on specific places and how their spaces can impact on visitor experience. The research explores how cultural organisations can become more inclusive through embracing their physical context and developing strategies and ethically informed interpretation.

RCMG has been commissioned by and partnered with cultural organisations to help them harness research innovation to drive transformation in their working practices, their relationships with communities and to take up a more inclusive role in relation to pressing contemporary social, political and environmental issues. This work supports risk taking and innovation, delivers change across organisations; and generates new insights around inclusive thinking and practice for the wider UK and international cultural sector.
