Museum Mentors Networking Event
MDEM are pleased to be providing an opportunity for Museum Accreditation Mentors in the region to network, consult and help shape the future of mentoring in the East Midlands.
As many mentors will be aware, Arts Council England (ACE) are currently reviewing the museum Accreditation process, which is being led by Ellie Collier. At this event Ellie will give an overview of the review process, its context and background, with a look forward at its priorities and timescales. This is your chance to feedback to ACE your experiences of being a mentor, what works and what doesn’t. It is your chance to influence the review and shape the role museum professionals could or should have, when supporting the voluntary led museum sector.
The has been much discussion on the valued support mentors provide, but are expectations on you too high or too low, could professional support be delivered in an another way, and how would you like it to work – for both you and the museum. All of these questions and more will be included in the event. We really need to hear your views.
There will also be the opportunity to network with other mentors in the region and to discuss what support and opportunities you would like to see for your role going forward.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided on the day. MDEM are able to offer reimbursement for travel expenses not currently covered by your organisations.
