Museum Managers Network – who are we? Many curators manage museums on their own, with only a small support staff or teams of volunteers. The responsibility of forging relationships with governing bodies, gaining or retaining Accreditation, developing audiences, managing volunteers, fundraising and ensuring the safety of visitors can become overwhelming. MMN is a mutually supportive network for those museum managers that will assist them in the management of museums and collections, encourage greater resilience, confidence, and nurture professional development.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
