Upcoming Opportunity: Enter the Museums Change Lives Awards for 2019

The Museums Change Lives awards are now open to enter for 2019. These awards are connected to the Museums Association campaign of the same name from 2017, which aims to recognise the social role which museums play in their local community.

These awards highlight the achievements of both individuals and organisations who have made a difference to their audiences and wider communities, promoting engagement, health and wellbeing, reflection and debate, and creating better places. Now open for entries include the following four categories:

  • Best Museums Change Lives Project (institution)
  • Best Small Museums Project¬†(institution)
  • Judges’ Award for Environmental Sustainability¬†(institution)
  • Radical Changemaker Award (individual)

The deadline for entries to be submitted is Friday 9th August, and the winners will be announced at the upcoming Museums Association Conference in Brighton in October 2019.

To enter you can make an application as an individual or as an institution, and further guidelines for making an application can be found through the Museums Association website.

Good luck to all those who enter!
