Date: Tuesday 6th June 2023

This short and informal online session is a chance for museum staff and volunteers across the Midlands to come together to share ideas and learning.

The theme for this session is ‘The Wild Escape’. Alongside the usual chance to network and share recent experiences in delivering educational sessions with peers from across the region it will be a chance for delegates to hear about recent projects relating to the Art Fund¬†Wild Escapes¬†initiative. This is a major creative project for museums and schools inspired by the wildlife found in museum and gallery collections.

Aims of the session

  • A chance to informally talk to others in the region about the current situation with museum learning in schools
  • Hear examples of what Creative Learning Services and others have been delivering to schools in the region relating to The Wild Escape
  • An update from all about how this school year has gone

This session will be hosted by Programme Facilitator Mary Sibson, Creative Learning Services.

The session will be run on the online meeting platform Zoom and details of how to join the session will be sent to delegates the day before.
