The Midlands Federation of Museums & Art Galleries’ Annual General Meeting and Spring Workshop will take place at The Herbert Art Gallery and Museum on Thursday 19 March. Sharon Heal, the recently appointed Director of the Museums Association, will present the keynote speech.
After the AGM will be the Spring Workshop: Creating Family Friendly Experiences. Making our museums family-friendly is essential in ensuring that we engage the next generation of museum visitor. Creating that memorable and positive experience for families can make the difference between gaining loyal supporters of our institutions and alienating a valuable part of our audience.
The workshop will include talks and interactive sessions from Mel Corner of The Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, David Sheldon of the British Museum, and Dea Birkett, Director of Kids in Museums.
