Since April 2012 Oxford ASPIRE has worked with Banbury Museum as a Delivery Partner on Extending the Reach, a three year project to expand their existing reminiscence programme across Cherwell District and South Northamptonshire.

The need for cultural organisations to be entrepreneurial is a subject we are passionate about at the Oxford University Museums Partnership. Adaptability in the face of change and the ability to think outside the box on a range of issues from fundraising to organisational structure can help the sector to evolve in a fast-changing environment.

From November 2011 to June 2012 year 2 children at St Philip and St James Primary School, Oxford, worked with the education officer Michelle Holloway and other museum staff at the Museum of the History of Science to create a temporary exhibition on the history of medicine.

Since Summer 2015 Creation Theatre has been working with the Ashmolean Museum on its 'Holiday Play in a Week' programme, which works with young people (13-16 years) to develop an abridged version of a play over the course of a week, which the young people then perform for family and friends in the museum.
