Instrumental Values: Professional ethics in collaborative cultural work

The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) has awarded Kerry Wilson, Head of Research at the Institute of Cultural Capital, a mid-career Leadership Fellowship. The Leadership Fellows scheme is designed to support research leaders to undertake focused independent research and collaborative leadership activities, which have the potential to generate a transformative impact on their subject area and beyond.

Starting in July 2017, the award funds a two-year study of ethical dimensions of collaborative practice between museum and library sectors and partner agencies working in two priority public policy areas, including public health and wellbeing and prison education reform. The research has been designed to explore the transitional efficacy of museum and library sectors’ ethical codes of practice when working in collaborative public policy contexts. Using a communities of practice (CoP) conceptual framework, the research will develop two sector-specific case studies focusing on museums working in health care settings and prison library services. The research aims to provide evidence-based guidance on shared codes of ethics in cross-sector cultural work, emphasising the relationship between professional values and the capacity of museum and library sectors to respond and contribute to cross-government public policy agendas in England.
