The Creative Museum project team convened in Brighton for a partner meeting and workshop Building a Creative Museum Together. Attendees were introduced to both local and project partner case studies of creative collaboration as well as a series of quick-fire workshops for participants to experience different aspects of how to develop a creative museum. These included workshops with Kevin Bacon, Brighton Museum, Jenny Siung, Chester Beatty Library, Marilyne Basilic & Juliette Giraud, Museomix, Sejul Malde, Culture 24, Deborah Hustic, Radiona Makerspace, and facilitated by Don Undeen of Georgetown University and Jo Anne Sunderland Bowe of Heritec UK.  The event was part of Brighton Digital Festival.
