Welcome to SHARE Museums East. We run a comprehensive development programme for East of England museums of all sizes and types. Our main focus is on museums in the Arts Council Accreditation scheme, but everyone is welcome to use our website and many of our courses have tickets for other heritage organisations.

Audience and visitor experience

SHARE has the tools and training to help you. Resources on our website include:

Developing an Inclusive Team

A new opportunity for 5 museums to work with consultant Sam Allen to create and implement an equity, diversity and inclusion action plan for recruitment as well as a public policy statement reflecting the ethos and intentions of the whole organisation.

Each of the cohort museums must send two delegates 3 of the 4 workshops (dates tbc between January – March 2024). Each workshop will be supported by self-led homework and a 60 minute mentoring session for each museum. Opportunities for unfacilitated peer sharing will be available to help participants build a network of support.

Contact Su Booth or Sally Ackroyd to register your interest for the programme.

As part of the SHARE Environmentally Responsible Museum project, SHARE will fund and support two museums not yet engaging with environmental sustainability and responsibility to embed good sustainability practice into their aims and objectives, with a specific focus on cutting carbon emissions.
