AIM Sustainability Workshops

Maximising Your Museums Potential


Improving turnover and containing costs in economically challenging times is a major challenge for all museums. This series of one day workshops that are being repeated across the UK is being funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. They have been developed to help smaller and medium sized independently managed museums, galleries and heritage attractions identify and develop areas that could increase their income and help them to become more resilient.

By the end of the day you will have:

Explored the key areas of potential for increasing your museum's income

·         Identified priority actions to release that potential
·         Developed a route map to enable you to achieve realistic targets
·         Identified external sources of help and advice to help you progress


       Thursday 26th September - Scott Polar Institute Cambridge


The workshops will be led by a Judy Niner of Development Partners and supported by an AIM Council member and the AIM Executive Director.

Each workshop will be limited to a maximum of 15 organisations with two places allocated to each organisation. We are keen to encourage attendance by senior museum staff, ideally accompanied by one of their trustees or chair.

Judy Niner has 30 years experience in marketing, fundraising and business development in the not for profit sector. She has developed fundraising campaigns for the Southampton Cultural Development Trust and London Transport Museum. Judy is Chair of the Trustees of Cogges Manor Farm Museum and a Director of the Roald Dahl Museum.
