Oxford ASPIRE Events Programme

The Oxford ASPIRE Events Programme, a series of knowledge-sharing workshops for museum and cultural professionals, is led by the ASPIRE team at Oxford University Museums as part of their Arts Council England-funded Major Partner Museum activity. Workshop themes include Fundraising and Philanthropy, Commercial Enterprise, Digital and Managing Museums. These have attracted delegates from across the country, are free to attend, and resources are freely available via the ASPIRE website and blog. Key to the success of these events is a focus not only on the experienced speakers invited to present and the facilitation of knowledge sharing and continued peer support between delegates.
