A Sixth Sense: West Mids Museum Development Officer’s Annual Report

It’s that time of year! Us Museum Development Officers of the West Midlands have released out third joint annual report, allowing you to find out the plans for the future, and the outcomes of the past year.

During 2011/12 the West Midlands MDOs have focused on organisational sustainability and resilience, encouraging museums to adapt to change by adopting new ways of working, developing new partnerships, engaging more with their communities and making more effective use of volunteers. Environmental concerns have been high on their agenda, supporting museums to adopt a ‘greener’ approach as they plan for a longterm sustainable approach to the care of collections. They have also facilitated a wide range of learning and training opportunities, and, in particular, have encouraged museums to take up the challenge of digital engagement.
