The Beaney hosted their ‘Museum Reflections Part 2: Diversity and Representation Conference’ on Monday 28 June 2021.
At the conference, they mentioned the upcoming launch of ‘The Beaney Health and Wellbeing in Museums Toolkit’ which is now available to view on our website.
The toolkit provides the reader with a step by step process for planning Health and Wellbeing activities, including considerations on:
● Making your programme relevant by understanding the needs of your local
● Linking up with community partner organisations
● Planning activities
● Links to useful resources
The toolkit has been piloted with local museums and developed with their feedback which was incorporated into the final document alongside case studies from The Beaney, Chatham Historic Dockyard Trust and The Amelia.
It also includes input from volunteers, participants and facilitators at The Beaney.
This toolkit was developed using funds through their work as part of the Kent and Medway Museums Consortium Portfolio NPO supported using funding from Arts Council England.
There were a number of resources shared in the conference chat box and discussions which may be useful in your work going forward which are listed below:
