Hello World!

Welcome to Birmingham Museum Trust‘s labs blog. If you have found our blog you are special and join a small group of fans interested in tinkering in the museum space.

Most museums have “serious” places for general public communication. Places where we make announcements, check our grammar and show off something shiny that we are confident works.

The labs blog is our place to share our internal sketchbook and ship work early that may still be in development. We will share ideas and progress on topics including digital, organisational transformation, community led research approaches and anything else we can think of. We can safely post things on here that may not yet be ready for large scale attention because we know you understand that trying new things can be messy. Sometimes we may post how we’ve made mistakes or failed in an attempt to be open and transparent.

We hope you found what you were looking for in this blog, do get in touch and join us as we make a ruckus.

Take care for now

Zak Mensah
Co-CEO of Birmingham Museums Trust
