Beginning with a keynote from Wendy Parry, the Museum’s Relationship Manager at Arts Council England, presentations will include sessions on the introduction and use of costumed interpreters in a museum setting, community engagement activities and lessons learned from the Museum’s lifelong and formal learning programmes as well as how the visitor experience has been enhanced.

AIM Launches New ‘Preparing to Prosper’ Publication At Winter Events

Since 2015, museums across the UK have been using the AIM Hallmarks of Prospering Museums to make a big difference to their success. The ‘AIM Hallmarks of Prospering Museums’ are a framework to help museums and heritage organisations throughout the UK. The Hallmarks identify characteristics that are typical of successful heritage organisations and enable them to prosper and thrive.

At three events this winter in London (6 December), Birmingham (17 January) and Edinburgh (30 January), the Association of Independent Museums (AIM) is launching ‘Preparing to Prosper’: a new publication that will show museums how to use the AIM Hallmarks to benefit their organisation.

The new publication includes case studies, new insights and questions to help museum staff, trustees and volunteers think about the way they work.

The new publication distils the best ideas from museums that have used the AIM Hallmarks, so that museums can put them into practice immediately to see positive results quickly and event attendees will be able to get an exclusive hard copy before it is published next year.

Booking is now open for the AIM Preparing to Prosper events for both AIM members and non-members. Tickets cost £25 and full information can be found at AIM Preparing to Prosper.
