Consultation on proposed changes to Birmingham Museums & Art Gallery’s delivery of services

Thier proposals:

  • To increase income generation – through extending charging for exhibitions, events and activities and increasing the use of our facilities for external hire 
  • Temporary exhibitions, events and audience development programmes – we will maintain a full programme in our Gas Hall exhibition space, delivery of other programmes and activities will be dependent on available resources 
  • Loans programme – we are proposing to reduce the number of loans we can make from our museum collections to other museums and galleries 
  • A review of our picture library service – how we provide or licence use of images from our collections 
  • Schools programme – we are committed to facilitate as many school visits as we can, but with reduced resources available, will need to review the number of taught sessions we can provide
  • General expenditure – we will look at all ways of reducing our expenditure with least impact on our services to visitors
