About the training

Are you interested in exploring how your museum could contribute to people’s health and wellbeing but are not sure where to start? Over the course of two workshops participants will gain the skills and confidence to develop their thinking about this work to support the delivery of health and wellbeing provision within their museum.

The training will help attendees to: overcome the barriers to working with the health sector, create opportunities to contact and meet with potential health and wellbeing partners, begin the process of thinking about your museum its spaces, collections and resources and how they can be utilised in this work, explore ways to measure impact and support organisational change.

This training will be delivered by the National Alliance for Museums, Health and Wellbeing which is funded by Arts Council England. In partnership with West Midlands Museum Development. Please visit our website for more details:

Who should attend?

Workshop places will be prioritised for Accredited museums and those officially Working Towards Accreditation. This training is aimed at museum staff or volunteers, who are interested in developing and delivering health and wellbeing work within their organisation.

  • the chance to hear inspiring case studies from museums who have already set-up this work

  • introduce ways to work in partnership with health related organisations

  • highlighting and identifying key resources available to support museums

Day two: will focus on networking opportunities for participants to meet with potential partners as well as a chance to hear from other museums about their work
