Have you been doing ‘Diversity’ wrong?

Shaz Hussain (Assistant Curator, Science Museum London)

Language is the most accessible tool we can use to change the way we think. Harnessing the power of language we can begin to address where the sector has gone wrong in tackling the ‘Diversity’ issue and how we can practically move forward.

adelepatrickGWL @rachelthaingray @glasgowwomenslibrary

‘State of the sector’ surveys and reports dating back to the late 1990’s expound the manifold benefits of ‘diversifying’ the workforce and make the case for change from cultural, business, strategic, legal, and social justice perspectives.

E: Strictly Champagne – Choreograph Success, the launch of a Jutland Hero

Stephen Prowse (Director of Heritage Project Delivery at Artelia)

@ArteliaUK

HMS Caroline is a unique survivor from the First World War’s Battle of Jutland. Now on display in Belfast’s Titanic Quarter, she is rated as a 5* attraction with acclaimed visitor reviews that proclaim: “I think this is one of the best displayed ships in the world!”

Artelia has worked with the National Museum of the Royal Navy since January 2014 to conserve and display the ship and in March 2018, opened a new dockside visitor centre telling the fascinating story of the ship. In this break-out session, HMS Caroline’s curator, Victoria Millar and Artelia’s Director of Heritage Project Management, Steve Prowse, explain how careful choreography between client and consultant team created such a successful outcome that has won the hearts and minds of visitors from across the world. We will look at the challenges of setting up the project with multiple funders and stakeholders, creating a ‘living’ brief, cost management, conservation and interpretation, meeting hardstop deadlines, like the Battle of Jutland 100 year celebrations and issues like contract and finding specialist suppliers. There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and take away lessons to apply to your own projects.

Making Money – Easier Said Than Done?

Increasingly museums are having to generate revenues to support their aims and ensure sustainability in the longer term.  So, what are the challenges reinventing museums as businesses and developing entrepreneurial attitudes?

Julie has had an eclectic career which commenced in the financial services sector. After several years of commercial and managerial experience, she embarked upon a complete career change moving to the National Museums on Merseyside as General Manager at the Lady Lever Art Gallery in Port Sunlight. It was here she was given the opportunity to run the museum and suggested introducing meetings and events for additional revenue.  A further period as the Managing Director of an industrial training company consolidated her business and marketing skills until she moved to the Cotswolds in 1996.  Julie then spent 5 years working across the world as Sales and Marketing Director for the Fire Service College at Moreton-in-Marsh developing a series of international partnerships and franchises to deliver industrial fire training to the oil, gas, aviation, tourism/leisure sectors, and to fire and rescue services across the globe. Julie took up her current position at the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, a registered educational charity in 2001.  Her remit is to run the world-class museum and ensure profitability of its commercial operations to ensure long-term financial sustainability.

After receiving a Sustainability Grant from AIM, Grantown museum employed a retail consultant to explore ways to improve their shop. Dan will highlight the success of this initiative and talk through the process of improving their shop from fumbling in the dark to having a clear strategy.

Dan joined Grantown Museum as manager in 2015. His background is in community arts education and youth work as well as events management. Since joining the museum he has been working towards an MA in Museum studies at St Andrews University.

Club, Temple, Forum or Attraction – What Type of Museum Do You Have?

C: Income from collections

Charlotte Steels (Director, Gawthorpe Textiles Collection) and Jane Isaacson (Sustainability & Development Manager, Dunollie Museum)

@rbks_textiles

Gawthorpe Textiles Collection is a small independent charity operated by part-time staff and volunteers. New models of working are now being explored to broaden the charity’s income streams and to build a more secure future for delivering its charitable objectives. With a more entrepreneurial mind-set, initial steps are being taken to develop a commercial business model based on utilising designs from the collection to create high quality product ranges. This includes linking in with local businesses and manufacturers to forge new partnerships and mutually beneficial associations. Looking outside of the museum sector, links have been made with the Chamber of Commerce, local business networks and a mentoring scheme. All of which have been a valuable source of advice, support and enthusiasm.  The charity is directly benefitting from a business mentor appointed and funded by the local business growth hub. This is providing input from an experienced entrepreneur to support product development, business planning and marketing in order to make best use of limited budgets and resources. This case study is an example of how small heritage organisations can have significant potential to grow new partnerships and harness new income generating activities.

Charlotte joined GTC as Director in December 2016 after 13 years with Lancashire County Council Museums where she held roles managing the Museum of Lancashire and as Senior Museum Manager for the county. Her remit at Gawthorpe includes creating a more sustainable future through building income generation activities and partnership development.
