Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
Museums Journal reports that the National Media Museum, Bradford, has made cuts of about £250,000 in the first phase of its review of spending, which is due to complete at the end of January. Direct changes have been made to 35 roles and nine members of staff have taken voluntary redundancy. The roles reorganised so far were from: collections; public programme; communications; design; and learning departments.
There were 183 roles across the museum before the restructure, including 41 casual staff.
Jo Quinton-Tulloch, head of the National Media Museum, said: "We do not anticipate any compulsory redundancies in this phase, and despite the on-going requirement to save money I am confident these changes will enable the National Media Museum to deliver a re-vitalised visitor offer, a more varied programme and focus on the use, research and development of the core collections.”
The review aims to bring down the running costs while also looking at ways to increase visitor numbers through improved public exhibitions, events and cinema programme.
