Nantwich Museum Selected for Digital Skills Support

National Lottery Heritage Fund  Digital Skills for Heritage

Nantwich Museum is pleased to announce its selection as one of the 60 diverse organisations participating in The Lab which is part of the Digital Heritage Lab providing digital mentoring support. The Lab aims to develop, on a bespoke basis, the individual digital capabilities and capacity of participating organisations. It is a free programme for small to medium sized heritage organisations and is project managed by the Arts Marketing Association (AMA) in partnership with Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy, One Further and the Collections Trust and is funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund as part of the Digital Skills for Heritage initiative.

The Museum will be paired with an expert Digital Skills Mentor who will advise it on digital strategic planning, assess training needs and encourage, inspire and provide new ideas and approaches. Visitors will benefit through, for example, improved displays, interactives, animations and videos. Museum Manager, Kate Dobson, commented: “This is a brilliant opportunity to develop our digital skills at a time when we need to look outside the box for new and exciting ways to make accessible the important local stories and artefacts that illustrate the history of the town”.
