Te Manawa Museum in Palmerston North, New Zealand, was one of the first in the country to actively engage ethnic communities in developing a programme of exhibitions. Te Manawa’s partnership model, although intended to be highly participatory, produced unexpected outcomes. Four Case Studies from the series are presented here as part of a ‘corporate learning history’, a concept borrowed from the field of cross-cultural management. The corporate learning history views intercultural dialogues in organisations not as problems that demand a solution, but as sources of organisational learning - in this case, for the benefit of the inclusive museum.
