I am Victoria McMillan, a PhD researcher based at Nottingham Trent University, in Nottingham, England. My research explores ecomuseum practices in the UK, with a particular focus on using the ecomuseum ideal as a means to mobilise a holistic heritage approach for promoting stewardship of place and climate action.
I have an undergraduate degree in Archaeology (University of Nottingham, 2001) and a MA in Museum & Heritage Development (Nottingham Trent University, 2019). I have over 18 years of experience in socially engaged informal education and practice across all ages, including home education groups, ecology, conservation, community heritage, cultural and arts projects and museums.
I am passionate about nature, the environment, heritage and community empowerment and believe that a holistic approach that brings these together through socially engaged practice is a powerful tool to human and nonhuman connection, wellbeing and co-flourishing.
