Transformers: Influence 2018-19

Transformers: Influence is for people who believe in the social power of museums and who want to learn more about developing active partnerships within their communities, with the ambition of affecting the museum sector more widely.

Transformers: Influence, the Museums Association’s (MA) scheme for individuals looking to develop active partnerships between museums and their communities, is open to applicants from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.

Applications are open to freelancers and volunteers as well as people employed in a museum setting.

The programme takes place over three days:

  • two learning days focusing on content drawn from the Transformers Toolkit of Leading Self and Impacting Others
  • A final sharing day, where participants will gather and reflect on their learning

Participants will come away with ideas and practical tools to develop their own practice and initiate steps towards change.

Transformers: Influence has a fee of £150 per participant. This fee will include attendance at the learning days and MA membership for one year (existing members will have their current membership extended by 12 months, or their direct debit fees put on hold).


Applications close on 23 July.
