Travelling Together Peer Networking

Our National Lottery Heritage Fund project will develop museums’ skills and confidence to listen and create change across the communities they serve

South West Museum Development Programme

Travelling Together: Museum Journeys Towards Inclusion and Collaboration is our year-long project to invest in the skills, confidence, and aptitudes of our vibrant museum sector to help museums to reach a wider range of people.     

Commencing January 2024, the seven Travelling Together Champions will host a series of in-person and online peer networking sessions for museum professionals throughout the South West. Focusing on topics aligned with their individual passions, these sessions will offer knowledge-sharing opportunities supported by expertise, including that of the Travelling Together Steering Group. Participation is open to all people in the region working or volunteering in museums.

You can book or register your interest for the below sessions through the contact details provided. Make sure to let the Champions know your name, contact details and whether you have any access needs or dietary requirements in your email.
