SW Museum Skills: Forums

Forums operate at a regional and sub regional level and are delivered either by South West Museum Development (SWMD) staff or in collaboration with other Sector Support Organisations where relevant.

Forum members may be supported by SWMD with grants for travel, and training bursaries to access training beyond the region or carry out project activities which support members of the forum to collectively develop their practice. Forums are open to the workforce of the Accredited museum sector in the region (excluding the SW Conservators Group). If you are interested in joining a forum below, please contact the relevant SWMD Officer.

SWMD operates the following forums:

  • Copyright Forum led by Digital Engagement Officer, Rachel Cartwright
  • Museum Volunteering Forum led by Sustainable Volunteering Officer, Eleanor Moore
  • South West Conservators Group led by Conservation Development Officer, Helena Jaeschke
  • South West (Touring) Exhibitions Network led by Roz Bonnet, Programme & Projects Officer
