Regional Stakeholder Forum 2015 – Online

The annual Regional Stakeholder Forum was held at the Museum of Applied Arts and Science in November 2015.

The 2015 Forum explored issues affecting the regional heritage sector from regional tourism and museums, crowdfunding and the role of consultants; and how the arts can ‘activate’ and energise your museum.

If you couldn’t attend the Forum, or if you’d like to review any of the sessions, they are now available below.
