A Museums Strategy for Wales 2010-2015
This is the first national museums strategy for Wales. It offers realistic actions that museums can take to improve services and to demonstrate the benefits of museums to society as a whole, particularly in difficult times.
Museums help to ensure that the people of Wales are confident about, and proud of, their heritage. They encourage active participation in culture, protect our heritage, help expand our international profile and contribute to our tourism industry.
The strategy identifies 3 key principles for museums:
Museums for everyone
Museums will contribute to living communities, promote the values of a fair and just society and provide lifelong learning opportunities for all.
A collection for the nation
Museums will hold care for and continue to develop collections for the nation which represent our rich and diverse culture.
Museums will manage their sites, operations, collections and people effectively to continue providing services for citizens that are relevant, robust and sustainable.
In each chapter, the strategy outlines the issues involved and identifies actions that can be taken to improve the services that museums offer to the citizens of Wales and those who visit.
The action plan
The strategy includes a detailed action plan that identifies actions, partners and measures of success for the next 5 years. The action plan will be reviewed annually.
The Museums Strategy steering group meets 2-3 times a year to review the progress of the strategy. The minutes of the most recent meeting are available to download or read. Minutes of previous meetings are available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 0300 062 2112
