About Transformers

Radical change in museums
Transformers is the Museums Association's workforce initiative for people in mid-career, supported by any accredited museum (or museum working towards accreditation), looking to change the way they work.

Participants are challenged to develop new ways of thinking and supported throughout to engage with experimental ideas, fresh thinking and learning from the experience of experts and innovators.



Following a successful pilot phase, the Museums Association received funding for 24 places from Arts Council England, two places from Museums Galleries Scotland, and one place from Amgueddfa Cymru (National Museum Wales) and the Welsh Museums Federation, to support a phase of the Transformers programme in 2015-16.
