Who can become a GEM member?
GEM membership is open to anyone interested in learning through museums and heritage.
Heritage learning does not just mean straightforward teaching. From huge events like sleepovers in the galleries and theatrical performances to small-scale community clubs and sessions, from schools and families to older people, from opening the doors to new audiences to giving old ones reasons to return. No two days as a heritage educator are the same and the diversity of work our members does is incredible.
GEM membership is available to individuals and institutions. This includes museums, galleries, country houses, heritage sites, urban and countryside interpretative centres, science centres, schools and universities.
Members may be full-time educators or other staff with an educational role who interpret the environment, sites and collections in a wide variety of ways, promoting and exploiting their full potential as learning resources.
