Creative Museums opportunity (Small museums)

This 18-month programme offers a fantastic research and development opportunity for a small cohort of museums to enrich experience for their audiences, regenerate their programmes and venues and develop new business opportunities using the ‘Scratch’ process.

Having held four introductory events across the country in Manchester, Bristol, London and Gateshead and for those who were unable to attend these events, the film of the London session is available here.

They are now inviting interested museums to download our application pack, which includes the project timeline, FAQs, ‘Scratch’ for beginners and a letter of recommendation from David Jubb, Artistic Director and CEO, Battersea Arts Centre and Michael Day, CEO, Historic Royal Palaces.

The programme is targeted at small museums, with 9 full time equivalent posts or less, however, there is an opportunity for larger museums to be involved by way of the ‘Scratch groups’ that will surround the central six selected museums.

The closing date for applications to Creative Museums is Friday 4 September 2015

For further information incluiding an application pack visit the Creative Museums website.
