What makes a prospering museum and how can you use the AIM Hallmarks to inspire new ideas and help you face the future with confidence?

Find out at our special seminar on Tuesday 30 January 2018 in Edinburgh with lunch included.

This winter, AIM is holding a series of seminars to launch ‘Preparing to Prosper’: a new publication that will show museums how to use the AIM Hallmarks to benefit their organisation and you can join us in Edinburgh on Tuesday 30 January.

Attendees at the recent London seminar said: “So much great advice and good experiences from using AIM Hallmarks at Preparing to Prosper launch!” and “Really inspiring to hear about AIM Hallmarks in action at the Preparing to Prosper event. A fantastic sector resource.”

Distilling the very best ideas from museums that have used the AIM Hallmarks, the new publication includes case studies, new insights and questions to help museum staff, trustees and volunteers think about the way they work.

Attendees will be the first to receive this new hard copy publication.

The seminar – sponsored by Perrett Laver and supported by Arts Council England – will feature keynote speaker, Moira Sinclair, CEO of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.

The seminar will also host case studies from AIM members that have successfully used the AIM Hallmarks. Speakers will be:

  • Mhairi Cross (National Mining Museum)
  • Charles Brien (Almond Valley Heritage Centre)
  • Kate Edwards (Seven Stories, National Centre for Children’s Books)

There will also be an opportunity to take part in informal and friendly discussions and workshops to help museums share ideas and experiences, along with lunch.

Helen Bonser-Wilton, Chief Executive, Mary Rose Trust and one of the previous seminar speakers said: “You can see that the AIM Hallmarks were developed by Museum practitioners. They are practical and easy to apply to your individual Museum business, giving you a good sense check of where you are performing well and where you need to focus improvement.”
