At SHARE Museums East we run a comprehensive programme of development opportunities for museums of all sizes and types. We support museums to develop their skills across a range of topics including collections management, audience development, leadership, learning, and economic sustainability. You will also find that many of our development opportunities will help you achieve the standards required by the Arts Council’s Museums Accreditation Scheme.
People working and volunteering in museums across the East of England are key to the success of SHARE Museums East, and we place skills-sharing and peer-to-peer learning at the heart of our programme. Our museum development opportunities are enriched by the willingness of participants to share their knowledge through training, and through coming together in network groups and small project groups.
Take a look at the About page to explore how we approach museum development, and browse our training calendar to find the right training opportunities for you and your museum. You will also find links to Museum Development colleagues in each of the counties of the region who provide support and advice at a local level. We also have information on the newly launched 2017 SHARE Volunteer Awards and 2017 Mystery Shopping Scheme.
Please take the time to fill out the 2017 SHARE Training Survey and tell us what training you would like to attend.
