Disabled and/or neurodivergent people and those from Black, Asian and Ethnically Diverse backgrounds are currently under-represented on the Committee so applications from people in these groups are particularly encouraged.

This is an exciting time to join – as the scheme helps museums to reset and face the future from a strong and sustainable foundation.
