WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A TRUSTEE

SHARON HEAL, EMF TRUSTEE

I am delighted to be a trustee of the EMF with its long tradition of championing the value of museums across Europe. We live in turbulent times and as museums face up to their responsibilities in society I am excited to see how they will respond. Collectively we need to rethink the role and purpose of museums as they work with their communities to recover from Covid-19 and face the challenges of inequality and climate change. Over the past 12 months museums have demonstrated that they can make a positive difference in society even when their doors are closed. I look forward to celebrating their achievements and recognising the life changing work that museums can deliver in the EMYA ceremonies over the coming years.
