Cornwall Museums Partnership

Purpose + Values

Let's go

Who is CMP?

CMP is a Cornwall-based team of museum and heritage sector experts who are passionate about the role and importance of collections, heritage, and museums. We operate both technically and strategically to support museums day-to-day, while looking at current and future needs and global trends to help inform and invigorate practice.

Who is CMP?

Our values drive the way we work. They describe how we will make our vision real

Collaboration Innovation Inclusion Integrity

We believe that collaboration provides fertile ground for the flourishing of inventive and resourceful practice. We listen and form genuine partnerships which are built on mutual understanding and respect.

We seek new solutions and think differently. We pioneer new ways of doing things and set high standards in everything we do; we are not afraid to try radical approaches.

We respect and value multiple perspectives. We are committed to creating and maintaining an environment that respects diverse traditions, heritages, and experiences and is inclusive for everyone.

We act with professionalism, transparency, and honesty. We are trusted partners.

Our commitment to equity

Our work supports museums to make a positive difference to peoples’ lives. CMP exists to invigorate museums and help them to address the structures and practices which have excluded people for too long. By working in partnership with museums to help them become more open and connected to the people they serve, we aim to inspire the wider heritage and cultural sectors.

Our Board

Our Board of Directors provide help, guidance, and advice on all aspects of our work in accordance with the Charity Governance Code.

Meet the team

The CMP team is made up of 10.2 FTEs. We support museums to do the things that they might find difficult to do on their own. This includes advocacy, audience development, fundraising, and workforce development.
