Delivering Change is a collective effort between Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS) and partnering museums, galleries, and community groups to restructure as organisations based on anti-oppressive principles.

It has been developed by MGS and an Expert Advisory Group, who have lived and professional experience of barriers to participation in culture. It’s funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund, thanks to National Lottery players, and the Scottish Government.

During the research for the Delivering Change Development Phase, we were told by museums, galleries, and communities that Scotland’s museums continue to be unrepresentative of Scottish society or unequal in terms of:  

  • The people who make use of them for cultural activities
  • The collections they preserve in relation to contemporary society
  • The narratives that they tell are often monocultural and do not represent the diversity of lived experiences and histories
  • The people who work there 

The research also showed that there is a strong will within communities and the museum sector to improve access to culture, but they’re facing multiple challenges when putting it into action. 

Delivering Change will take a flexible approach to supporting museums and communities to improve access to culture through:  

  1. Anti-oppression work for MGS, museums & community groups
  2. Building relationships based on solidarity with systemically excluded communities
  3. Re-structuring as organisations based on anti-oppressive principles
