Have your say in shaping the next National Strategy Delivery Plan for museums in Scotland
Work is underway to create the third and final Delivery Plan for the current National Strategy, Going Further: A National Strategy for Scotland’s Museums and Galleries.
MGS is inviting everyone who works or volunteers in Scotland’s museums and galleries to work with us to produce the new plan. Your contribution will ensure that it is grounded in knowledge of the current landscape and future aspirations of the Scottish sector.
Our aim is to ensure that the new plan is produced for the sector, by the sector, enabling us all to work together for the benefit of Scottish museums; our collections our workforce and our communities. To date, feedback indicates that the strategy’s six aims are still considered relevant to our work. We will work throughout Scotland to re-envision the actions of the new Delivery Plan, addressing the current and future landscape.
We will consult the sector online and through facilitated events in Edinburgh, Perth, Inverness and Dumfries. Join us at any of these facilitated sessions, where we will explore the six aims of the National Strategy and will drill down on feedback gathered through the online consultation.
The online survey is now open until 7th June (a PDF/Word version of the questions is available, to help you to formulate your responses before entering them into the online survey). The information will be used to illustrate the impact of the strategy to date and the findings and feedback from the consultations will be used to shape the next plan. We plan to launch the third Delivery Plan in January 2020.
We are also currently evaluating the second Delivery Plan (Realising the Vision: Delivering Public Value Through Scotland's Museums and Galleries), and earlier this month called for examples of how we are all meeting the aims of the National Strategy.
