Emma Routley, the first world war coordinator and project officer at Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, has become one of the MA’s Wales representatives.

She has worked in the heritage sector for the past ten years, primarily in the field of community engagement, and has experience of working within local authorities, independent and national institutions.

In a freelance capacity she has delivered oral history training to volunteers, and assisted community groups with funding applications and Pioneer Area Cultural Poverty Plans.

She has a master’s in museum learning and visitor studies and is hoping to begin the AMA later this year.

She have been involved with the Federation of Museums and Art Galleries of Wales since 2009 and is currently a coopted member of the Friends of the Newport Ship.
She will work alongside Jonathan Gammond, taking over the role from Heledd Fychan, who has joined the MA’s board.

Jane Wells, the MA’s membership engagement officer, said: “The reps play a vital role in the MA’s work across the UK. We are pleased to welcome Emma to this important role as one of our two Welsh representatives.

“She will work alongside Jonathan Gammond to keep us up to speed on the needs of our members in Wales and the latest developments in the Welsh museums, galleries and heritage sector.”
