The London Museum Development team will work to ensure that museums are able to better harness the power of digital technology, to better manage their assets and potentially reach every adult and child in London.
Alec Ward, Museum Development Officer (MDO), Digital and Communications, coordinates the Digital Futures skills programme, along with providing specialist advice on-site at museums. Alec is also responsible for the London Museum Development team’s communications through Twitter and the weekly e-update (PDF, 277kb, opens in new tab).
If you would like to talk to Alec about your organisation's digital needs or porjects, please contact him using the information at the bottom of this page.
The programme is designed to excite the London museum sector with the possibilities of digital technologies. Alec Ward works closely with the Museum of London’s Learning department, and other partner museums, to deliver skills sessions on the potential for engaging audiences. He also works closely with Collections Trust to develop skills on strategic and ‘back of house’ aspects of digital work. The programme also features briefing sessions designed to engage managers and senior leaders with digital technologies. Further information about the programme can be found on the Digital Futures training page.

Following the recent advice from the government and Public Health England surrounding COVID-19, the Museum of London and the Museum of London Docklands will be closed to the public as of Thursday 19 March.
The health and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and community are of utmost importance to us and this decision is in response to increasing concerns surrounding COVID-19.
We will continue to closely review the advice from Public Health England and monitor the current situation of COVID-19 to keep people up to date on our plans.
