Exclusively for AIM member museums, 10 places available.
Find your why. Learn how to create a clear, compelling purpose for your museum
AIM’s first Hallmark is Purpose; a clear statement about why you are there which should be shared by everyone in your museum.
Learn how to create your pitch – it’s more complex than you imagine! Once you have a pitch, if someone asks you about your museum or you’re bidding for funding, you can clearly state why you exist and why you deserve to be supported. It will become a very powerful statement and will transform how you think about yourself.
What this workshop will cover:
be clear about your purpose: what is your museum for?
how to ensure you all share the same vision
vision, mission and purpose: are they different and does it matter?
This workshop will be interactive, engaging and stimulating.
What you will take away:
the beginnings of your vision and mission
how to involve all your volunteers/staff in creating your purpose
top tips on creating a shared vision and mission
