What do museums in the South East need?

South East Members’ Meeting to discuss cultural landscape
The Museums Association’s (MA) South East Members’ Meeting will address the current cultural landscape and look at how the needs of museums and staff in the South East can be met.

Among the speakers will be Jo Jones, the MA’s south east rep and director of Canterbury Museums and Galleries, and Janita Bagshawe, director of Royal Pavilion and head of museums, Brighton.

Jones said: "The members' meeting is a great way for members to keep up to date about the MA’s work and for the MA to find out what is happening on the ground in the South East."

The meeting will also discuss the MA’s policy priorities and how its Museums Change Lives campaign will be rolled out across the country.

Sharon Heal, the MA’s head of publications and events, said: “The MA is keen to connect with members across the UK which is why we are holding members' meetings in every nation and region.

“These meetings are a really good way for the MA to find out what the pressing issues are and for members to help shape the MA's policy.

“At the South East meeting in Canterbury we will be discussing how we can roll out Museums Change Lives and increase the impact of museums in society.”

Held at the Beaney House of Art and Knowledge in Canterbury, this event runs from 1000 to 1600 and is open to all MA members.

It is free of charge for all individual, institutional and corporate members to attend.
