This is the first official newsletter from Museum Development South West. We also have a brand new website and a digital copy of our upcoming programme is now available to download.

We’ve launched our Small Open Grants 2024, which awards up to £10,000 for small but impactful projects. You can also find out more about all five of our upcoming grant streams for 2024/25, made possible with support from Arts Council England and Art Fund. Over the year, our grant schemes range from supporting individuals to developing specific skills, to supporting museums to engage with schools in meaningful ways

Also, you can now read a new blog on the Travelling Together celebration event held in Taunton last month. As the project nears its end, it was an opportunity for the cohort museums, Champions and Steering Group members to reflect on the progress they have made and what they have gained from the experience.

We’ve also got a hello from Julie Taylor Kent, the Museum Development Officer for the West of England, as well as your usual round up of sector updates.
