Transformers: Influence is a Museums Association professional development and advocacy network for people who believe in the social power of museums and who want to learn more about developing active partnerships within their communities, with the ambition of affecting the museum sector more widely. After a competitive application process, Dr Murphy has been invited to participate in this network alongside staff from Tate, V&A, Courtauld Institute, Historic Royal Palaces and the National Trust.
Participants on this scheme will come away with ideas and practical tools to develop their own practice and how to initiate steps towards change. Dr Murphy will channel her learning’s from this into her research, teaching and consultancy work.
Dr Murphy is Convenor of the MA in Visual Arts Management and Curating, and also teaches professional practice on the Art History and Visual Culture BA at Richmond.
