£250k awarded by NLHF for Geographic Museum Forums in Scotland 6/2/2020

The National Lottery Heritage Fund has invested £250k in supporting the network of 12 geographic museum forums across Scotland. These are peer-led groups which respond to regional needs, and which have been working more closely with Museums Galleries Scotland over the last year. Forum Connections will run for four years from April 2020, with a newly appointed Forums Facilitator and support from MGS staff. Caroline Clark, NLHF’s Director Scotland said “we have long been in the business of building resilience into the individual heritage projects we support. Now we are delighted to fund an initiative which will create a network of support to many museums, allowing them to work in partnership to build their own successful futures.MGS, MGS (forums facilitator post)
