When: Monday 11 June 2018 - Saturday 30 June 2018 Where: AIM Time: 9.00am
A new website and series of useful free resources created by the ‘Open Up: Museums for everyone’ project have now launched. The resources and website have been made possible thanks to funding from Arts Council England, MALD, Museums Galleries Scotland and National Museums Northern Ireland and were designed to help all size museums to increase the diversity of their visitors to make real and lasting change in the museum sector.
Co-created with twelve pioneering museums, the new resources can be downloaded in PDF and are available in English and Welsh. There is: A practical guide to support museums to increase the diversity of their visitors, an introduction to the guide, case studies from participating museums and a sign up for museums across the UK to get involved, offer their own advice and expertise and receive further project news
AIM’s Director, Emma Chaplin, said of the launch: “The Open Up resources offer new, inspiring and practical ways for museums to broaden their relevance and appeal to attract a more diverse range of visitors. This is not about new projects but new ways of working. I am excited to see how AIM members rise to the challenge to develop and grow audiences for a successful future.”
