We’ve launched a podcast!

Culture Now is a community of mid-career museum professionals who want to challenge established thinking and provide platforms for discussion and debate on the major museum issues of the day.

The podcast is full of shared experiences and questions and is for anyone who feels ’emerged’ in their career but not quite ready for that Director of the British Museum job just yet.
