Peer Development Groups launched

Three of our new Hampshire Solent Peer Development Groups blasted off at Thursday's special event at Explosion! in Gosport.

The groups for 'Emergency preparedness', 'Audience development' and 'Retail' are now underway, with clear group agreements and schedules for the year. Group members agreed shared learning goals for the programme, explored ideas for collaboration and began to plan to spend their £500 investment pots.

For scheduling reasons, 'Collections care' and Display and interpretation' will be launched at an additional event on 27 June. There are still a few places in these groups.

The event was facilitated by MDO Lucy Marder with Vicky Dawson, Accreditation Technical Adviser for the South West Museum Development Programme.

For Vicky this was a great opportunity to meet Hampshire Solent museums and find out more about them.
