India, 2012

In partnership with

Participants on the Leadership Training programme 2012

Museum professionals from 12 institutions across India are taking part in the Leadership Training Programme, an initiative designed to support the development of museum leaders as a way of helping facilitate change in the Indian museum sector.

The programme is a collaboration with the Ministry of Culture in India and the National Culture Fund. Participants take part in three modules created to balance the theoretical with the practical, building on existing skills and advising on museum best practice. Training has been carefully shaped to ensure participants can immediately apply and share their knowledge and skills within their organisations.


Programme participants have been drawn from government-funded museums.

About the programme

Arranged across three modules, the programme focusses on both the key skills required of museum leaders and some of the more practical aspects of museum management.


Collaborative activities also form a key component of the programme, with participants encouraged to share ideas and experiences and build a network of colleagues. It is hoped additional support provided through the alumni network will help delegates identify and implement changes at their museums.
