Empowering Collections report (Publication)

Posted: Monday, 03 June 2019

The Museums Association has published its report on its Collections 2030 year-long research project, looking at the purpose, use and management of the UK's museum collections.

The report, Empowering Collections, is the result of a consultation with more than 1,000 people from the museum sector, academia, funding bodies and community groups, and is intended to act as a long-term, strategic guide for working with collections over the next decade. This sets out and identifies 11 key recommendations that aim to create a culture change and will allow institutions to bring their collections to new audiences. .

The report aims to equip museums to harness their collections for a social impact - making them more empowering, dynamic and relevant to communities and potential audiences.

The report also highlights case studies from around the UK to showcase the work that is already happening to transform collections.
