Out in Oxford, a printed trail that explores LGBTQ+ across Oxford University's collections, has been shortlisted for the Museums+Heritage Award for Excellence 2017.
The annual Museums+Heritage Awards, now in its fifteenth year, recognise projects of excellence, innovative and ground-breaking exhibitions from galleries and visitor attractions across the UK and Europe. These range from remarkable achievement of national institution to projects crafted with limited resources and those championing their staff and volunteers who work hard to deliver inspiring visitor experiences.
The Awards are judged by a panel of the sector's leading lights including, Diane Lees, Director General, Imperial War Museums; Bernard Donoghue, Director, Association of Leading Visitor Attractions (ALVA) and other leading sector professionals.
Out in Oxford has been shortlisted for the category 'Projects on a Limited Budget'. The winner will be announced in an awards ceremony on 17 May 2017 in the Historic Staterooms of London's 8 Northumberland Avenue by comedian Ian Moore.
