NMDC and the Museums Association are working together on a day of nationwide political advocacy for museums this spring.
Museums Day will take place on 15th May 2017 and will be a focal point for all museums to engage with local and national politicians to promote the impact that museums have across social, cultural, economic, scientific and educational spheres.
Museums will be encouraged to step up their advocacy activity through a range of different activities, including writing to key stakeholders, inviting local politicians to visit museums and using social media to promote museums’ work. The Museums Association and NMDC will provide guidance and facts and figures for participating museums prior to the event.
Museums Day follows similar successful events in the USA, where the American Alliance for Museums’ successful Museums Advocacy Day has run for several years.
