I have been doing some work on horizon scanning – sometimes called ‘futures work’ – in the organisation. It involves picking up on bits of news and information that connect with the ‘big picture’ and then looking at how, or when, they might impact on the sector. But of course I soon realised that means I need to get it out there to all our members so watch this space – items will be appearing in the members’ news pages of our website and the sort of thing to look for is:
Research shows that all cultural services, including museums, impact on wellbeing – Scottish Mental Health Festival is raising awareness of the role of the arts as apowerful tool to aid mental illness sufferers. Lots going on – see www.mhfestival.com for details
Of course I’ll be glad to get any feedback that you have on any of the items that I put up!
