As part of our Arts Council England supported National Volunteer Makers Training Programme, we held a showcase conference to hear from the museums themselves who are pioneering Volunteer Makers.
Our pioneers shared the steps they are taking to manage, grow, inspire and engage a community of blended volunteers while widening public participation and diversity. Take a look at their Blogs to find out more about their approaches.
We had such a great time at the 2017 Conference in Manchester, meeting people who were keen to find out more about what Volunteer Makers can do for them.
“#museums2017 Really like how @VolunteerMakers markets #volunteering opportunities by commitment: a few minutes; a few hours; a day or two” Karl Wilding, Director of Public Policy and Volunteering at @NCVO
