West Midlands Museum Development

The West Midlands Museum Development (WMMD) aims to develop the museum sector, building capacity, resilience and skills to create a sector that inspires and builds diverse audiences.  The work covers the counties of Birmingham and the Black Country, Herefordshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire.

The programme was developed to respond to the needs of Accredited museums and those Working Towards Accreditation.

The programme, which reflects Arts Council Englands’ strategic goals, is focussed on five key areas;

  • Collections and Excellence
  • Audiences and Opportunity
  • Resilience
  • Leadership
  • Young People
