Although the WMMD team are working remotely please be assured that we are very much here to support the region’s museums through this challenging time so please contact us via email if you need specific advice and we will do our very best to help.

All cultural organisations priorities will undoubtedly be changing in light of the evolving situation and they will be assessing the impact on their people and organisation.  The WMMD programme will also be changing in response and we will be contacting all the region’s Accredited Museums asking a small number of questions which will help us to develop the support we will offer over the coming months.  Keep up to date with these developments by continuing to visit our website or signing up to our mailing list.
