This group was created following the successful Heritage Lottery Grant Catalyst project (2014-2018) which brought together a group of Hampshire and Solent museum staff, volunteers and trustees to enhance their fundraising capacity and bring new skills into the sector.
This is a closed group for participants in the project.
They regularly meet as a peer support group to exchange ideas and initiatives. A guest speaker is invited to attend these meetings to talk to the group. For further information about the group please contact Stephen Lowy or Katrina Burton.
A meeting on the 5th August 2019 took place at the Spring Arts & Heritage Centre, and Romilly Beard, Fellow in Museum Practice, Smithsonian Centre for Learning and Digital Practice, gave a presentation about her research in the USA and potential collaboration with UK and south east museums.
