The UK Medical Collections Group
Thackray Museum, Beckett Street, Leeds, LS9 7LN
Tuesday 5 March 2013, 10am-4pm
This conference will explore the impact of collections on health and well-being and the ways in which museums can evidence their contribution to health agendas.
- How can museums evidence the impact of their health and well-being work in a way that is meaningful to healthcare practitioners?
- What funding is available, and how can museums take advantage of new commissioning frameworks?
- How can museums develop and advocate for their health and well-being work in a sustainable way?
You will hear from representatives within the NHS, the museum sector and researchers from University College, London who will unveil a new evaluation toolkit created to evidence the health and well-being outcomes that result from engagement with museums.
This conference is subsidised by Arts Council England who have helped us to keep delegate fees to £30 per head.
