Participation Team

Connecting, creating and sharing through culture

The Participation team sits within the Communities and Wellbeing Service of Leicestershire County Council. Our activities build on the existing cultural assets hosted and supported by our colleagues within our Museum, Heritage, Libraries, Collections and Learning services. Our remit is to generate new cultural activity and connections within Leicestershire communities, created by and for local people. We work very closely with Charnwood Museum, and other site-based partners, to make this happen through a programme of exhibitions and activities.

The current focus of team activity runs across 3 strands; Volunteering, Targeted Projects and the Cultural Communities Network.
