Transformers: Influence 2018-19

Developing active partnerships with your community
Transformers: Influence is for people who believe in the social power of museums and who want to learn more about developing active partnerships within their communities, with the ambition of affecting the museum sector more widely.

Transformers: Influence is open to applicants from England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland and will be open to freelancers and volunteers as well as people employed in a museum setting.

The programme will include three energising and practical days:

• two learning days with content drawn from the Transformers Toolkit of Leading Self and Impacting Others

• a final sharing day, where participants will gather and reflect on their learning.

Participants will come away with ideas and practical tools to develop their own practice and initiate steps towards change.

More than visionary – practical, hands-on, empowering, not tokenistic. The start of something bigger…"
