Applications are now open for this year’s Volunteers for Museum Learning Award, presented by the British Museum and the Marsh Christian Trust.
The award celebrates the contribution of volunteers in museums, galleries and heritage sites all over the United Kingdom, recognising their achievements and dedication, as well as the innovative ways they are engaging with the visiting public.
There will be twelve regional winners, each of whom will receive a £500 prize. Additionally, an overall national winner will receive a further £2000. The awards will be presented at the British Museum in September. Last year’s national winners were the Blaenafon Heritage Group Volunteers from Blaenavon Community Museum.
Volunteers are able to apply themselves or museums can apply on their behalf. Multiple entries from the same museum, gallery or heritage site are welcome. To submit an application please visit the British Museum website here. The closing date for applications is Friday 14 July 2017.
