Participants at a regional International Museum Academy meeting

A key element of the Transforming Future Museums programme of skills training for museum and heritage professionals is the cascading of knowledge to museums across Greece.

As part of the International Museum Academy 2016, UK course leaders delivered a one-day training session to selected Greek course leaders, who will cascade the courses at multiple locations in Greece in 2017–18.

Towns across Greece with an established museum and cultural heritage scene will serve as regional hubs, drawing together a number of museum professionals in each region.

We will work closely with local trainers to develop course materials and deliver training sessions, thus mobilising the local community of professionals to participate in the regional hubs and, in turn, cascade the courses further within their museums.

We have drawn up a provisional list of regional locations and identified a number of museums as possible hosting venues for the training courses. Locations that are under consideration as possible venues for the three-day courses include Lesvos, Corfu, Tinos, Volos, Kalamata, Heraklion and Alexandroupolis.

The programme is supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
