What is the Age Friendly Museums Network ? (formally Age Collective)

We believe that museums and older people enrich each other. We aim to develop innovative and collaborative opportunities by bringing people together. As well as museum, galleries and arts professionals, the Network includes those from health and social care, voluntary sector, research professionals and older people themselves.

The Age Friendly Museums Network is supported by the Baring Foundation over the next 2 years and offers free workshops and training, explores and shares good practice and encourages creativity and new initiatives. To join the Network follow the link: http://eepurl.com/_Kbev

We are currently organising a Cross-sector training workshop: “Working with older audiences: exploring diversity and sustainable partnerships” on Thursday 25th June  9.30am – 4pm (lunch and refreshments provided) 

More and more museums are using their creative expertise and resources to develop work with older people. The Age Friendly Museums Network invites professionals from the health and social care sector and voluntary sector to share their skills and expertise with museum professionals to create the best experience for older audiences.

The Age Friendly Museums Network is currently offering 15 FREE places on a training workshop for health and social care professionals together with museum professionals to develop good practice and promote partnership working.

  • Meet colleagues from museums and health and social care sector to share ideas
  • Explore how partnership working can benefit older audiences and your organisation through inspirational case studies
  • Gain a  greater understanding of what museums and partners in health and social care might have to offer
  • Find out how museums can improve the lives of older people.
