Training and events

West Yorkshire Museum Forum

Our aim for museum forums in 2022 is to create “a professional day out” – a chance to catch up with your museum colleagues in the region, visit an interesting venue, get the most out of being at a site, hear some interesting case studies – and really to enjoy being out in a different museum with different colleagues!

This session will support you if you are seeking to understand, or advocate for, why and how your museum could apply ethnically equitable practice to broaden its relevance.
