Come and find out about the many ways your organisation can take part in Parliament Week, for free, in an exciting nation-wide event.
Parliament Week, supported by the House of Commons and the House of Lords, informs and engages people across the UK about the past, present and future role of Parliament and democracy in the UK. In 2012 it will take place from November 19th to the 25th.
These briefing sessions are being organised jointly with Culture24 who are supporting Parliament Week with partner registration, events listings and promotion.
Each free half-day briefing session will include:
• An overview of Parliament Week’s aims and activities
· Information on how to register as partners and list your events
• Ideas and inspiration on running cost-effective, successful events
• An opportunity to network with other potential or existing partners
• An optional tour of Parliament
Attendees are advised to arrive at the Cromwell Green entrace (point 7 on the map linked below) 20 minutes early, to get through security.
The Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) room is off Westminster Hall. We will provide signs or attendees can ask one of our visitor services team who will direct them. There is also a lift for those who need it.

Culture24 and Parliament Week
Parliament Week is a national initiative co-ordinated by the House of Commons and the House of Lords. Parliament Week is organised by Parliament’s Public Engagement and Learning team, who produce projects and resources designed to engage new audiences with Parliament and its work.
Culture24 is a non-profit, cultural publishing organisation. We collect and share cultural data, publish websites, run the national Museums at Night campaign and lead action research projects. We also spend lots of time thinking and talking about the issues and opportunities digital affords the arts and heritage sector. Our events – roundtables, workshops and conferences – are all about opening up and sharing conversations.
Everything we do is concerned with the ways in which new and emerging digital technologies can act as powerful tools to reach different audiences – culture lovers, families, communities, enthusiasts, teachers, learners and children.
