Kevin Ward, Museum Development Manager
Museum in the Park
I have worked, both voluntary and paid, in the museum sector since the early 1990s. I am passionate about the sector and the role museums can play in society. I completed my Heritage Conservation degree in 1997 and my Associateship of the Museums Association in 2002. I am currently the Museum Development Manager of the Museum in the Park, Stroud. This is a local authority museum service with the collections owned by a separate trust. I have been in this role since 2007. Previous to this I was the Head of Collections Management at the RAF Museum, London. I am also currently the Vice Chair of the South Western Federation of Museums and Art Galleries and the Accreditation Mentor for the Jet Age Museum, Gloucester. Both are voluntary roles.
