Thu 3 November 2016, 10:00 – 16:00 GMT
Museums are increasingly looking to improve and extend their partnership working with other organisations. Partnerships can support museums to reach out to new audiences, to develop new services for their visitors, to explore new ways to generate income and to imbed themselves more deeply within communities. Funders are also increasingly looking for organisations to be more outward looking, and able to demonstrate they are willing and able to work in partnership.
Developing successful links with organisations, whether other museums, local organisations, education, businesses or the wider arts and cultural sector contributes to building a sustainable museum – but sometimes knowing where to start, how to approach partners and what makes for successful partnership working can be hard to gauge. If your museum would like to do more partnership work this workshop would be perfect for you.

Nathaniel Hepburn, Director, Ditchling Museum
Hannah Steggles, Volunteers Officer, Cromford Mills
