The Museums’ Organisational Health Check (OHC) is a tool for museums that is used across all the English Regions by Museum Development England. It is designed as an indicator to help you highlight your museum’s strengths, understand where your museum has areas of development and feed into your forward planning.  This will enable you to prioritise and focus your work with Museum Development North.

In this session Museum Development Advisers Kaye Hardyman and Alan Bentley will talk you through the process, and staff from the National Videogame Museum in Sheffield, who have completed an OHC, will tell you about their experience.  There will also be plenty of time for discussion and Q & A.

We believe the OHC is an excellent tool for museums that are going through a period of growth, reflection or change. This could be if your museum is considering a new project, if you are working with Museum Development North for the first time or when you are reviewing your business plan. Our experience suggests it is also useful for museums applying for Accreditation for the first time or shortly after your successful application to help you reflect.

Insightful, interactive and informal, come along to gain new insights from our guests, meet colleagues from the region, and connect with the MDN team. Everyone who works and volunteers in museums is most welcome, including museum freelancers who want to stay connected.
