It is the priority of the Peace Museum Project Management Team to include Sierra Leoneans in the process of building the Museum. Since the project began in 2011 the team has worked closely with the Special Court Interactive Forum (SCIF), which consists of about fifty civil society organizations.

The forum has helped to raise awareness around the implementation of the Peace Museum Project and facilitate the participation of members of the public to contribute to the various stages of the project.

Outside the capital Freetown, the PMT continues to maintain links with civil groups in the twelve districts of the country and has established Peace Museum taskforces in all districts. These taskforces have been instrumental in engaging members of their community on the project.
