A total of 22 museums have been commissioned through four rounds of funding.  They are the core of a growing Happy Museum Community of Practice.

These commissioned projects form a community of practice through which the programme creates, tests and shares practice, fosters peer-learning, creates spaces for deeper and more innovative thinking all backed by programmes of research and advocacy which underpin and share thinking within and beyond the museum sector.

There is a real sense of shared endeavour, enthusiasm and commitment. Being part of an influential and thoughful alternative museum reality is very inspiring and has clearly met a need within staff and volunteers within the sector. – HM ‘friend’ about the Community of Practice
