About this Event

Museums need to be agile to adapt quickly in these uncertain times in order to deliver a positive visitor experience. Many museums are redesigning their operations and creating new flexible approaches to ensure that their staff, volunteers and visitors are safe and have a positive experience.

This series of webinars will explore practical examples of how museums, galleries and heritage sites can apply agile concepts to care for their collections and meet visitor needs. Whether you are in management, learning or front of house, hear from your peers and learn how you can play a role in adapting to the ever-changing world.

Programme

Session 1 - Embracing Agile: Transforming the way we operate

Date/Time: 13 January 2021 at 6:30pm-7:30pm GMT

Speakers: Daniel Pett, Fitzwilliam Museum; Rebecca Dalley, Shuttleworth Collection

2020 was a difficult year for the heritage sector. Many museums, galleries and heritage sites have had to review their organisations and use agile principles to redesign their operating models to ensure that they remain open, relevant and viable.

Joe Sullivan, LMG Chair, will explore how museums are transforming the way they operate with our panel Daniel Pett (Fitzwilliam Museum) and Rebecca Dalley (Shuttleworth Collection) where they will explore the lessons learned and discuss to what extent they think the changes they implemented will be maintained.

Session 2 - Embracing Agile: Enabling positive visitor engagement in an uncertain world

Date/Time: - 27 January 2021 at 6:30pm-7:30pm GMT

Speakers: Dr Dominique Bouchard, English Heritage; Sarah Briggs, Museum Association

In 2020 the traditional ways for many museums, galleries and heritage sites to engage with their visitors were no longer possible. Learning professionals have had to be innovative, creative and flexible in continuing to deliver their public offer. New approaches in both digital and in-person engagement were needed to give visitors a positive experience.

Joe Sullivan, LMG Chair, will explore how the sector is enabling positive visitor engagement in an uncertain world with our panel Dominique Bouchard (English Heritage) and Sarah Briggs (Museum Association) where they will explore the lessons learned and discuss to what extent we think the changes that the sector has implemented will be maintained.

Session 3 - Embracing Agile: Using agile for an individual growth mindset

Date/Time: 25 February 2021 at 7:30pm-8:30pm GMT

Speakers: Dr Zorica Patel, University of Westminster; Steve Gardam FRSA, Roald Dahl Museum

The heritage sector is currently facing some of the most significant financial and operational challenges in its history. Many organisations have furloughed staff, frozen recruitment and been unable to engage with volunteers and communities. Learning agility, a mindset that empowers individuals to continually develop and grow, can equip staff to deal with the increasingly complex problems they may face in this time of uncertainty.

Joe Sullivan, LMG Chair, will explore how individuals can develop and maintain a growth mindset, and examine the value of dedication and hard work in this time of uncertainty with our speakers Dr Zorica Patel (University of Westminster) and Steve Gardam FRSA (Roald Dahl Museum), where they will explore the support mechanisms from both academic and practitioner perspectives and ways to keep ourselves motivated.

Session 4 - Embracing Agile: Fostering collaborative practice to co-create

Date/Time: 11 March 2021 at 6:30pm-7:30pm GMT

Speaker(s): Dr Etienne Joseph, Hackney Archives; Frances Jeens, Jewish Museum London

Partnerships are even more important for the museum, gallery and heritage sector in uncertain times like these. Collaborating with similar-minded organisations provides a great opportunity for museums to maximise their potential to engage with and inspire their communities.

Joe Sullivan, LMG Chair, will explore how museums and galleries have collaborated and communicated over the last year with their communities with our speakers Dr Etienne Joseph (Hackney Archives) and Frances Jeens (Jewish Museum London) who will explore the lessons learned and discuss to what extent we think the changes that the sector has implemented will be maintained.
