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



Transformers Influence 2018-19 will allow successful applicants to learn more about developing active partnerships within their communities. Previous schemes include a successful pilot phase, Transformers 2015-16, and Transformers 2016-18.
