The Rural Museums Network is pleased to launch its 2022 Rural Voices Seminar Series – including the opportunity to dig deeper into last year’s topics – rural LGBTQ+ lives and representing Gypsy, Roma, and Travelling Communities in rural museums. A session on Virtual Volunteering provides further inspiration, practical suggestions, and support to those who work with rural life collections.

Join us for these monthly seminars to hear expert speakers and museum professionals share how rural collections and rural sites can better include a wider range of voices in the stories they tell.

These sessions are on the Zoom platform and are FREE for members (institutional and individual) and £5 for non-members.

Membership to the RMN starts at just £10 per year, representing good value for 2022’s Seminars as just one member benefit. For more information, visit our subscriptions webpage.

If you aren’t sure if your museum is a member, please do contact us to check before you book.
