Ditchling Museum of Art and Craft

Shortlisted for the Art Fund Prize for Museum of the Year, 2014

Audience development plan, activity plan, interpretation plan, successful Stage 2 HLF bid

Ditchling Museum in Sussex asked me to write their interpretation plan and report for their stage 2 HLF funding application. The contract was extended to include extensive consultation in focus groups, online surveys and exit polls and the HLF application Audience Development Plan & Activity Plan. The exhibition had to work across the original building and a planned modern extension.

The work focused on drawing out the unique and fascinating stories the content had to tell and organising them in a clear, engaging way that deeply embedded community work and local stories into a story of broader interest. The application was successful and the museum reopened in September 2013.
