Venue: The McManus, Albert Square, Meadowside, Dundee DD1 1DA

The MGS Strategic Learning Forum is a platform for museum and gallery learning practitioners to work collaboratively to improve learning provision in the Scottish heritage sector. The forum events are a valuable contact point between strategic-level education policy areas and museum staff and volunteers engaged in learning roles.

This is an in-person event providing an opportunity for us to catch up, share our current work, and learn from each other. This event will take place at The McManus in Dundee.

We will reflect on and discuss Scotland’s Strategy for Museums and Galleries, focusing on the Education priority area and its actions and outcomes. We will also discuss how we can work collaboratively and support each other to deliver the strategy’s actions.
