A visual literacy course for dermatology trainees

A visual literacy course for dermatology trainees

A pilot course with the aim of improving the visual literacy of trainee dermatologists from a regional training programme in Manchester in North West England was developed following discussions between senior dermatologists, an arts educator (Helena Tomlin) and a regional art gallery (Salford Museum and Art Gallery). The course ran from September – November 2015 and was funded by the Dermatology Centre of The University of Manchester Academic Health Science Centre.

“Whose Cake is it Anyway?” Paul Hamlyn Foundation

Organisation: 
Paul Hamlyn Foundation

In 2009, Paul Hamlyn Foundation commissioned Dr. Bernadette Lynch to work with a study group of 12 museums and their community partners across the UK, to gauge the real nature and effectiveness of the engagement practices of museums and galleries. Lynch recommends that participation must be embedded at the core of an organisation, rather than being run as a series of short-term, stand-alone projects.
