Don’t Stop Me Now 2023: Launching Your Museum Career

25 November 2023, 1400-1700
Online, Zoom

Museums are dynamic places to work, sharing ideas and knowledge, engaging with communities, and actively participating and impacting on society.   

Choosing a career in museums is an exciting and significant decision. But navigating the different options and getting that all-important first step on the ladder can feel daunting.   

We are here to help. This online event is aimed at students and people seeking to work in museums, who want to find out more about their options and learn how they can have a positive impact in their career.   

Through an informative and fun programme, learn from people working in the sector about how to start your career and take part in some of the vibrant and impactful work that museums are delivering.   

Don’t Stop Me Now helps you consider new and different approaches to your career, giving practical advice and useful ideas to help you chart a path through the museum sector.  

A full programme will be available in due course. Please note that this event will be recorded and available exclusively to delegates for three months. After that time, it will be made available for members on the Museums Association website.
