Thanks to funding from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Jen Shaw has been appointed on a short contract to help Groam House Museum with its ‘Sharing Local Histories’ project. 

Jen has extensive experience of working with volunteers and others in the arts and museums sector across the UK and abroad.  She brings skills that will help GHM volunteers to marry museum objects with local people’s knowledge. Those involved will then be helped to produce a series of virtual mini-displays. 

As there are only 12 weeks to complete the project Jen will also be giving us a ‘How to… ‘ guide. This is so that we can continue working with others to create mini displays over the coming few years.
