The Rural Museums Network operates a number of events and activities for members, aimed at promoting opportunities to share skills, knowledge and examples of best practice.
Our Rural Voices Seminar Series bring expert speakers and museum professionals together to 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.
If you aren’t sure if your museum is a member, please do contact us to check before you book.
Booking for our Autumn 2023 programme is now open. For more information and details on how to book, please click on the links below.
