Setting up a New Museum has provided the current manager with many learning points to guide this process to create a more sustainable, equitable museum as well as meet and learn from others who are starting on their road of setting up a museum.
The Brighter Day funding from AIM and the Worshipful Company of Arts Scholars Charitable Trust has enabled the museum to digitise a significant proportion of the archive collection, preserving the remarkable story of Gordon Russell and his company, and unlocking new opportunities for research, engagement and income generation.
We attended both workshops and found they were pitched at exactly the right level for our needs.
An inspection of military compasses and watches after a change of administration and storage policy brought to light the fact that some of these items held by the museum were potentially radioactively unsafe.
When I found out AIM were running a two-part course on Setting up a new museum, I was eager to enroll and was delighted when AIM offered us the grant to cover our costs.
