Elevenses – Thursday 4th November

Tea Cup with biscuit

Commissioning artists to work with your museum or collection

Join us to hear how museums have embraced the process of commissioning artists to work with their collection or museum. Stephanie Allen from Arts and Heritage will explain their role in supporting museums to acquire new skills in commissioning artists, and we will welcome speakers from Bronte Parsonage, Wakefield Museums & Castles, Pannett Art Gallery, Shandy Hall, Ripon Museums, and Colne Valley Museum to hear about their experiences and tips for getting involved.

Insightful, interactive and informal, come along to gain new insights from our guests, meet colleagues from the region, and connect with the MDY team. Everyone who works and volunteers in museums in our region is most welcome, including museum freelancers who want to stay connected during this time.
