9 May 2016 10.00 – 16.45 at the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol
31 people attended the SWFed Spring Forum 2016 with 5 speakers/facilitators held at and sponsored by the Royal West of England Academy, Bristol. The venue and exhibitions were introduced by Alison Bevan, Director and much enjoyed by all.

We’d like to introduce all of the workshop hosts at our 2016 Conference & AGM on the theme of Visitor Experience. Next up is Caroline Marcus – Takeover Day Director, Kids in Museums.
Caroline will be hosting a workshop entitled What can Kids in Museums do for you?
“Kids in Museums is a charity that works with museums, galleries, archives, libraries, arts and heritage sites to make them more welcoming of young people, children and families – in particular those who haven’t visited before. Come to this session to learn how our resources, tips and widely supported Manifesto written by families can help your organisation improve the family visitor experience. Take this opportunity to share your successes and explore the challenges faced by your organisation and the sector.”
