Free Events: Discover and Discuss the AIM Hallmarks

Launched during the AIM National Conference, the AIM Hallmarks of Prospering Museums help to identify the key characteristics of best practice and describe the set of behaviours that enable heritage organisations to prosper and thrive. With support from Arts Council England, AIM will soon be opening the learning and investment programmes to help museums put the Hallmarks into practice.

AIM members are invited to find out more about these new opportunities at two free events in London and Manchester, which will discuss the ideas underpinning the AIM Hallmarks. Both events will feature speakers who are leading practitioners and thinkers, plus there will be networking opportunities for all attendees.

Speakers at the events will explore the importance of a strong sense of purpose in leading organisations, and will consider how organisational culture and strategy combine to create the conditions for a prospering museum.


Darren Henley OBE, Chief Executive of Arts Council England, will be speaking in London on December 8
