Digital Futures skills programme

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.
