Kent & Medway Museum Development Programme

There's so much going on to help Kent & Medway museums to thrive.

In delivering Museum Development, we will challenge museums to be more imaginative and creative, and to develop a clearer understanding of their purpose as golden threads running through all museum development.  In particular, we will focus our work around four key themes:

  • Active Collections: Excellent practice in collections management care, access and interpretation
  • Great Experiences: Effective communication of a multi-faceted offer, providing real life-long learning, engaging diverse communities and contributing to social agendas
  • Better Business: Enterprising and income savvy, building relevant fundraising with a mature approach to finance management
  • Strong Leadership: Pro-active leaders, developing a diverse and skilled workforce, addressing succession planning through continual improvement

Our ambition is to strengthen and expand existing peer support frameworks, shifting the emphasis from primarily expert-led to peer-support models of Museum Development. So you'll see that we focus on enabling skills development and sharing opportunities including mentoring, sharing events, and networks.
