Case Studies

AIM Pilgrim Trust remedial conservation grant – York Army Museum

The project’s aim was to preserve three WW1 objects that are on display in the York Army Museum permanent exhibition: a Brodie helmet, a water bottle and part of a rifle (part of muzzle and firing mechanism).

Training grant – AIM museum trustee induction

The session was useful as it allowed me to meet the new trustees who were equally as nervous about the role they were undertaking, and also keen to learn.

Training grant – Modes user training

The training grant from AIM has been invaluable. Many training programmes seem out of reach or inaccessible, and it has been wonderful to be able to provide those that love the museum and its collections with skills that they can use on an everyday basis.

In the words of the Conference themes, the Conference was a fantastic way to be inspired, engaged, enabled and connected!

It was a fantastic opportunity for four of our staff members to attend the Army Museums Ogilby Trust Conference in York

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.

Training grant – AIM Hallmarks Together

This was the first time in a long time that I was able to see colleagues from across the sector face to face and hear how things were progressing since re opening.

AIM Brighter Day conservation grant – Gordon Russell Design 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.

Training grant – AMOT conference

Thanks to the invaluable support of the AIM Training Grant, the SCOTS Museum’s two staff members attended this year’s AMOT conference in York.
