Influence and Advocacy: MidFed AGM and Conference

Thu 2 November 2017, 10:30 – 15:45


Derby Silk Mill

Silk Mill Lane



The shifting financial and cultural landscape of the museum and heritage sector means that influence and advocacy has never been more important. Influence takes place across all levels; it is an essential feature for implementing change within organisations as well as the wider sector, taking it towards a more resilient and sustainable future. Highlighting the important and necessary work that museums do for our economy and society has made advocacy key to every museum worker’s role. This conference will look at case studies, methods of influence and the impact of advocacy; what tools do you need and how do you implement them?

We’re joined by Alistair Brown, of the Museums Association, and Mar Dixon to explore the role of advocacy.

Please note that the MidFed AGM will run from 10:30-11:00 am with all welcome to attend.
