Community Panel – volunteer opportunity

Staffordshire County Council

Staffordshire Museum is looking for enthusiastic people to help us to develop a new exhibition around the theme of ‘Childhood’. This community panel will work with us to create a fun, exciting and interesting exhibition for diverse audiences across Staffordshire.

You can learn about the museum and the fantastic objects in our collection and have the chance to work with museum staff and a professional designer.  As the exhibition develops there will be the opportunity to get involved in different areas such as research, display and marketing.

We would meet approximately once a month from November 2017-July 2018.

If you want to find out more please get in touch with Natalie at natalie.heidaripour@staffordshire.gov.uk.
