Delivering Excellent Heritage Projects: Free AIM Biffa Award Seminar

Delivering Excellent Heritage Projects: Free AIM Biffa Award Seminar

Tuesday 4 October 10.45am – 3.00pm at the London Transport Museum

Lunch and optional tour of the London Transport Museum included

Free entry

If you are about to start a new capital heritage project or want to deliver a successful interpretation project, the upcoming free AIM Biffa Award ‘Delivering Excellent Heritage Projects’ seminar on 4 October at the London Transport Museum will inspire you and give you the confidence you need.

Museums and heritage sites embarking on a major development project will gain invaluable top tips on how to manage processes and planning, how to avoid pitfalls and recognise opportunities and how to manage communications and relationships with key stakeholders and volunteers.

The seminar will also provide inspiring ideas for new interpretation approaches through practical examples and case studies from organisations that have successfully won major capital grants from AIM Biffa Award or HLF and it will be especially useful to those thinking of applying to the new  AIM Biffa Award History Makers programme.

A range of speakers from different sized museums and Industrial Heritage Sites, who directly managed funding from the AIM Biffa Award National Heritage Landmark Projects Scheme which invested £1.5m in saving and interpreting industrial heritage sites, will be sharing their insights and tips throughout the day and during informal chats during lunch.

There will also be a chance to hear more about the new AIM Biffa Award ‘History Makers’ grant programme and potential applicants to the programme are encouraged to attend this seminar to learn about what the programme is looking to fund and what will make a good application. The closing date for the first round of History Makers is 31 October 2016.
