This paper discussed the ‘Be My… Valentine’ project (2017) where students and staff worked in partnership with a UK museum in the co-creation and co-curatorship of a unique creative public exhibition and number of related activities. It considered how dynamic student and staff partnerships developed across a range of different disciplines as four undergraduate courses at the Arts University Bournemouth, UK, united in the creation of a unique exhibition. Importantly the paper considered the subsequent unexpected activities and outcomes that flourished as student and staff partnerships developed beyond the exhibition.The discussion explored the benefits and challenges of partnership work and how this collaborative project resulted in a unique creative community of practice
