Working in Partnership

Museum Development is the only programme working with the sector at a regional and local level. As such we work closely with national bodies in order to assist the effective promotion, targeting and development of the services they are seeking to deliver. This enables practical partnership working with national organisations such as Collections Trust, with whom we directly work, to co-deliver or facilitate training and skills sharing sessions. This collaboration has supported museums in priority areas such as copyright, SPECTRUM and disposal, bringing national collections management expertise into the regions.

Museum Development also works with national organisations in order to support the delivery of select Arts Council England Museum Resilience funded programmes, which in 2016-18 includes the Association of Cultural Enterprises retail programme, the Association of Independent Museums (AIM) Hallmarks programme and the Touring Exhibition Group (TEG) amongst others.
