Rural Proofing Resilience Workshops – Open for booking!

Abigail Millican, 22.02.2019

South West Museum Development is pleased to be hosting a series of Rural Proofing Resilience workshops (supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund) across Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and Somerset this year, in partnership with Cornwall Museums Partnership. The workshops are part of our two year Rural Proofing Resilience Project supporting rural museums in areas such as marketing, business planning, governance, finance and fundraising and the workshops are open to all museums in the south west.

These interactive workshops with specialist facilitators will share their expertise on Business Planning, Governance, Fundraising and Finance for museums in the coming months.

The workshops will see Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy deliver the first part of each session via webinar and attendees will have access to a portfolio of downloadable digital resources, including top tips, case studies, guidance around compliance and links to further reading and learning.

Each workshop is £20 per person – see below for further details on each session.
