West Yorkshire Museum Forum

**All meetings will be subject to confirmation in line with Covid regulations. As ever, we’ll adhere closely to Covid-safe practices when allowed to meet. An online alternative will be offered in the event that in-person meetings are not possible.**

Our focus for this forum is:

Developing school and family audiences

Making our museums places that school and families want to visit is a key challenge. We’ll hear from a range of museums about what they’ve been doing, and gain some ideas about what you could do at your museum.

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!

Forums usually start with tea and coffee from 10am and introductions from 10:30am. A delicious, complimentary lunch is provided – currently pre-wrapped in individual portions – 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.

The meeting theme and further details will be posted on this page closer to the meeting date.
