Making our own community
Future of MuseomixUK
Since last year, we wanted to expand MuseomixUK Community to expand our horizon into non-museums and what we can do internally as a community. To achieve this, we wanted to make our own community, keeping some of the Museomix ethos but adding our own personality and ethos to the mix.
Expand ethos behind our community to other areas (along with museums and art galleries) such as NHS, care homes, dementia, arthritis, homeless, young people, libraries with the understanding that we are not in it for the money – we’re in it for the sharing, learning, caring.
To ensure our community is able to fulfill our mission* we will organize workshops and learning days to allow for continued professional development (CPD) within our skillsets.
