Purpose

Derby Museums is for the thinker and maker in all of us

Together we make museums for the head, heart and hands. We will do this by:

  • Being independent
  • Fostering a spirit of experimentation
  • Pursuing mutual relationships
  • Creating the conditions for well-being (helping people connect with others, keep learning, take notice of the world and give back to the community)
  • Proving that we are doing it

By 2022

  • Every school in Derby will engage with Derby Museums.
  • We will transition to a mixed and sustainable funding model with a 45:55 mix earned income and public investment.
  • Through exhibitions and programmes all the communities of our city will recognize they have something to say about the story of our city.
  • We will lead an international programme to promote the work of Joseph Wright of Derby – the ‘painter of light’.
  • We will be regarded as one of the world’s most innovative and resourceful regional museums.
