It also contains case studies and information relating to the work of the Museum Development Officers.

Following the fantastic news that Marches Network were successful in their application to Arts Council England (ACE) for museum development funding. Members of the network and West Midlands Museum Development Offices have been keeping our “noses to the grindstone”. Currently, we are finalising the museum development plan for the West Midlands regions. We are working very closely with our ACE colleagues and appreciate the support they are providing.
The programme will be finalised by early July, so watch this space for further announcements.
In the meantime, please be patient, as we believe the programme that will be delivered by the Marches Network through West Midlands Development Officers will be worth waiting for!
As you are all aware, us MDOs are busy bees and our whereabouts isn’t always that easy to locate. To our surprise, yesterdays Spring Greens event at Winterbourne House and Garden created the rare moment when we were all in the same room (without it being for an intensely long meeting). This was a photograph opportunity we could not miss; unfortunately, the photos turned out a little blurry.
Can you match the MDO to the area? (Hint: bigger smiles do not necessarily equal lighter work load.) (text by Gemma Dhami Worcestershire MDO).
