The new Happy Museum Affiliate Scheme is now open for applications.
Application will be via a simple Expression of Interest – see below
Please send your expression of interest by 7th December 2016 to: Hilary Jennings at Happymuseumproject@gmail.com.
We will select cultural/ museums to be part of the scheme based on the following criteria:
- Interest in innovation and commitment to ‘re-imagining’ museums and other cultural organisations
- Commitment to undertaking related activity and engaging with sharing and peer-learning
- Demonstrable support at Director level in the museum/organisation
- To create a varied and diverse cohort of institutions and individuals with a blend of size, governance, and geography.
Selection will be by a panel including Hilary Jennings and members of the HM Board and team. We hope to recruit between 10 and 20 Affiliates in this initial round – there may be a further call for expressions of interest in early 2017.
Applicants will be informed as soon as possible, and not later than 10th January.
