Event Details


 'Building Local Links'

Friday 18th October 2019, Bexhill Museum

When we are buried under the day to day admin of fundraising, maintenance, rotas etc., it’s easy to forget the main reason that most museums exist: to engage with the communities around us.

This session will explore some of the innovative projects that a selection of our member museums have utilised to increase engagement with their local communities. Building links with the communities that surround museums and heritage sites can be a difficult process. In this session we will hear from a variety of different members about the projects and ventures that have enabled them to build better links and increase engagement with their stakeholders.

We will be hearing from a selection of fantastic speakers from local museums including Crawley Museum, East Grinstead Museum, Henfield Museum and Worthing Museum & Art Gallery, with more to be announced.

Lunch will be provided.
