Professional Resources

New Expressions aims to grow a culture of collaboration and exchange between museums, artists and communities. In addition to building a wealth of expertise through practice and evaluation, we have built a legacy bank of free-to-use professional resources. These include short films, case studies, useful tips and links.

  • Films


    New Expressions has created a small selection of films capturing the excitement and ambition of our contemporary art commissions and activity. The films offer an insight into the challenges and rewards of creative collaboration between museums and properties and artists.

  • Case studies

    Case studies

    A set of six case studies exploring a range of different ways in which artists and heritage partners have worked together creatively during New Expressions 3. Each case study focuses on a different aspect of collaborative working and identifies key successes and learning points, drawing on interviews with project leads, artists and members of the audience.

  • Documents and downloads

    New Expressions 3 is a national pathfinder programme. As part of our work to establish a national approach to collaboration between contemporary artists and museums, we've brought together here a series of links to other organisations and resources relevant to collaboration.
