Sustaining our organisations in this tough and uncertain economic climate is becoming increasingly challenging for many. As with all things, a challenge can often become an opportunity and increasingly there is strength to be found in working together, pooling resources, and developing projects and strategies that enable us to meet our goals and provide for our audiences and collections.

Over the coming years the South Western Federation of Museums and Art Galleries will be maximising on these opportunities by forging two-way partnerships that benefit members and the partner organisation.

This years conference explores and showcases examples of successful ‘partnerships in practise’, giving a chance to learn from others experience. Through presentations, interactive workshops and networking opportunities we will be sharing skills and knowledge from museums and potential partners such as archives, archaeologists, libraries and artist practitioners from across the region.

"Archives and museums have much to offer each other. I believe this conference will be a great opportunity to share ideas and expertise" - Tim Powell, The National Archives
