Supporting museums with audiences
The team can provide direct support, training and skills sharing for museums on marketing, learning, children and young people and community engagement.
We have a helpful PDF (346kb, opens in new tab) with information and resources for museums dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.
We can also signpost relevant programmes, resources and training being provided by others, for instance Arts Council England’s bridge organisation A New Direction, Group for Education in Museums (GEM), Kids in Museums, Engage and The Audience Agency. If you would like to talk about your organisation's specific digital needs or projects, try contacting the Digital Culture Network.

Learning Practitioner Networks
Across London there are a number of specific learning and engagement practitioner network groups, which support the work of staff in specific areas of engagement. This includes an early years, secondary, young people programmes manager, access and special educational needs (SEN) network. Details of these networks and who to contact to join can be found on the museum networks page.
If you are stuck with an audience query, email us at [email protected], and we'll see if we can be of any assistance.
