In 2023, Bethlem Museum of the Mind was awarded Diversity Matters grant funding from Museums Development London (on behalf of Arts Council England), to support the development of collaborative working practice. A group of participants attended workshops that focussed on the history and context of the museum, and how museum staff approach organisational planning, collections management and curation. Artist Beth Hopkins led some of the workshops, and the group created mono-prints based on aspects of their own lives. In this popup display within the permanent museum displays, these prints are aligned with museum objects - they are all significant and each tell stories. A zine available to read in the space provides more information about the project, and the beautiful artworks displayed.
