Interested in taking part in the Museums at Night festival and/or entering the Connect10 competition next year? Come along to our free, friendly morning briefing session: it’s for anyone working in a museum, gallery, historic house or other cultural institution.
Museums at Night is the annual after-hours festival showcasing the arts and heritage sector, which each year offers a great audience development opportunity. Connect10 is the competition that gives ten venues the chance to win an artist-led event and £2,000 as part of the festival.
Find out about the benefits and challenges involved in hosting an after-hours event, the advantages in working together with other venues and what it takes to be a Connect10 winner!
Learn how to organise a group of venues to take part in the festival and what it's like to host a top artist from the people who have done it before! Plus there will be plenty of opportunities to meet and chat with colleagues from your region.
Our guest speakers for this workshop will be Bill Griffiths, Senior Manager at Tyne & Wear Archives & Museums (and founder of the Late Shows), Michelle Lally, Visual Arts Officer at the 20 - 21 Visual Arts Centre in Scunthorpe and Elaine Lees, Communications Officer at Creativity Works in Blackburn.
We will also be joined by Connect10 artist Julia Vogl, who will share her experience of creating a 'social sculpture' with Newcastle's Discovery Museum for Museums at Night 2013.
Three workshops take place in the last week of September 2013, the other two will be in Birmingham and London. Places are limited so please book early!
Arrive at 9.45am and help yourself to tea and coffee.

*Lunch can be purchased from the venue cafe from 1pm.
