At this exciting event, speakers will impress us with presentations on two local projects, and the University College London will explain how their work aims to provide resources and support for those individuals and organisations working in the field of museums and health to build resilience through providing guidance on the cultural commissioning process.
The event is FREE and is being offered by the South East Regional Museum Development Officers who have been actively funding projects aimed at increasing the quality of volunteer management over several years. This event provides an opportunity to share good practice and inspire you with ideas for new initiatives.
You are invited to join us for an informal lunch at 12.00 and an opportunity to network, followed by presentations and an opportunity to share what you are thinking about or already doing.
1. Inspire others – and be inspired
A brief overview of the newly launched National Alliance for Museums, Health & Wellbeing, including mapping existing activities around wellbeing run by museums across the UK. Hear about examples of wellbeing projects that the National Alliance has gathered to date to inspire us with what’s possible on shoestring budgets, a dedicated team of staff and volunteers and a good fit between community need, collections and museum mission.
2. The Brooklands Reminiscence Café
With support from their local Alzheimer’s Society, the Café serves people living with dementia, their carers and partners on the third Thursday of every month. New roles for volunteers are emerging with ideas for a cinema showing old films and a new project for men in the early stages of dementia making replica 1930’s crowd barriers, run by current volunteers, is taking shape.
3. The Great War Project
Funded through the HLF Young roots strand the Museum's HYPE (Haslemere Young People's Exhibition) team and girls from Liphook Guides took part in a two year project that enabled them to research aspects of WW1. In particular they discovered local stories around the Canadians based at Bramshott Camp, as well as women's groups and family history that they then used to make a film and exhibition. The exhibition formed the summer exhibition at the Museum and was ‘Highly Commended’ in the Women's History Network Community awards.
