The Museums Association (MA) has launched the next phase of Museums Change Lives, campaigning for museums to develop their role as socially purposeful organisations and highlighting evidence that museums are working with their communities and delivering positive social impact.
Launch events across the UK will highlight the work that museums are doing to enhance health and well-being, create better places to live and work, and inspire engagement, debate and reflection. The events will be supported by the publication of an advocacy pamphlet detailing how museums are changing lives. The pamphlet is designed to show museums that they can embrace this kind of work whatever their size, location, collection or funding; and for funders, politicians and sector bodies to advocate for what museums can do and the difference that they can make if they are given support.
