Welcoming (Back) Visitors
MDY Museum Forums are a chance to connect with colleagues from your region, share your experiences and and discuss the issues that are important to you.
This session, led by Bridget McKenzie and Victoria Burns from Climate Museum UK, will explore how museums can respond as museums to the climate and ecological crisis – using collections, programming, and work with audiences, to enable people to gain awareness, reflect and take action.
We will explore how the social role of museums can support people and communities as they grapple with this global threat.
The potential for museums to deliver elements of their programme online has become clear as a result of the pandemic. This will be a very practical session to support you if you are thinking about incorporating online schools learning into your programme.
Are you thinking of improving your museum? Fixing the roof? Building an extension? Moving to a new site? Developing a new gallery or a whole new museum or store? Now or in 5 years’ time. We have a fantastic array of guests – Heather Lane from Museum of North Craven Life who have spent lockdown on important infrastructure repairs, Danielle Daglan from Craven Museum and Skipton Town Hall which has had a major restoration project creating a cultural hub for the Craven district, and Nat Edwards from the Thackray Museum of Medicine which has just reopened following a major redevelopment of the museum.
