Community engagement

At the Mary Rose we are committed to building partnerships across all communities, encouraging people of all backgrounds to engage with the Mary Rose collections and to discover what it means to them.

Current projects

We are currently involved in a number of community projects and partnerships.

Through funding received from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, we are working with six partners within the City of Portsmouth to engage new and diverse audiences.  Using inspiration from the Mary Rose collections, we are creating projects which will include dance, music and art, working with young adults through to those living with dementia.
