Counting the Cost: How can we make our formal learning programmes more sustainable?

Curious Minds is hosting two events exploring sustainable museums learning, presenting research and case studies from across the country, with guest speakers:

  • Emma Parsons (Museums Consultant)
  • Bill Griffiths (Tyne and Wear Archives and Museums)
  • Pollie Shorthouse (National Centre for Citizenship and the Law)

Are you considering different ways of working, reviewing your charges for schools, needing to make savings, or making a case for funding? 

Curious Minds have commissioned consultant Emma Parsons to complete a piece of work looking at how museums are reviewing their work with schools and how the sector can share ideas around sustainable working. 

The work will be discussed and shared at two seminars called ‘Counting the Cost’ – in Preston on 6th July and in Warrington on 8th July. Participants will find out about the research, hear a case study and look at how their own museums or practice can take steps towards sustainability, taking an action plan back to work.

Emma Parsons will deliver the seminar elements of each event, with Bill Griffiths presenting at the Preston event, and Pollie Shorthouse presenting at the Warrington Event.

Tickets are £16.67 per person to include lunch and can be booked via the following links:
