Art of Partnering

The art of partnering, NMDC Newsletter, December 2015


Art of Partnering report from Kings College London Cultural Enquiry.

The art of partnering is the final report of a Kings College London Cultural Enquiry in collaboration with the BBC, which explored the role partnership plays in enabling publicly funded cultural institutions to enhance the quality and diversity of their work across the UK.

This was the third Cultural Enquiry from King’s and a major new initiative at a time when partnership is embedding as a way of working across the cultural sector. NMDC’s Katie Childs was an Advisor on the research project, which identified twelve characteristics of partnerships and concluded that whilst the cultural sector is enthusiastic about working in partnership, there is limited evaluation and comparatively few digital partnerships. Case studies include the Cornwall Museums Partnership, the First World War Centenary Partnership and the V&A Photography Curators Training Programme.
