The Museums Association (MA) is encouraging anyone working in or for a museum, whether paid staff or voluntary, front-of-house or behind the scenes, to consider applying for Transformers: Influence.
Transformers: Influence uses the Paul Hamlyn Foundation’s Our Museum programme to bring people from across the UK together to share knowledge, make new connections, and be inspired to make change happen through your museum working in active partnership with your community. This Transformers programme has been developed with feedback from the sector to be more manageable for people who cannot make the longer time commitment of Transformers: Innovate and Transformers: Diversify. This two day course has been designed to meet your needs if you work shifts, part-time, freelance, have family or caring responsibilities, or just do not feel ready or experienced enough yet for something more intensive.
As the aims and commitment of Transformers: Influence will be relevant and useful to many roles, multiple applications can be made from one organisation. Successful applicants will be required to pay a fee of £100, which will include participation in two learning days over June and July and a year’s individual membership of the Museums Association.
