TEG and the Cornwall Museums Partnership have created this resource and template for museums, galleries and other cultural organisations that want to embark on a partnership project or programme.
If you are planning to work with other organisations on a joint project or programme (such as an exhibition or touring exhibition, collaborative learning programme, a joint research project, delivery of a jointly funded initiative, etc.) a partnership agreement is a good idea. Apart from the fact that many funders will insist on one, a partnership agreement is an invaluable tool to help you successfully manage collective activity.
A good partnership agreement will set out the framework for your project, clearly express who will do what and set out what will happen if partners do not deliver on their commitments. The process of putting together a partnership agreement will help to bring increased clarity to a project, particularly where there are multiple organisations and/or stakeholders involved.
The resource and template provide step-by-step guidance and top-tips to help you develop an agreement. The Word version of the template can be customised.
