South Yorkshire Museums Forum

South Yorkshire Museums Forum at The National Videogame Museum: Interactivity, Handling Collections, Working Objects

Speakers include:

  • Sheffield Museums Trust, running exhibits and the cost of living crisis.
  • South Yorkshire Transport Museum, Perhaps not a typical museum
  • Barnsley Museums , Barnsley’s interactive activities
  • Tours and discussions from the host museum, The National Videogame Museum

Our aim for museum forums in 2023 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!

Forums usually start with tea and coffee from 10am and introductions from 10:30am. A delicious, complimentary lunch is provided – followed by afternoon refreshments. Meetings usually finish around 3:30-4pm.

Every forum will involve a chance to view and discuss at least one aspect of the host site, hear short case studies from different speakers, and share brief updates with colleagues.

Whilst we hope there’s something in the plan for the day that appeals to you, we often find that it’s the unexpected and spontaneous conversations that spark most ideas and opportunities! So, join us for a refreshing, professional day out and see what fresh thinking you can gain.
