GEM Freelance Network
The GEM Freelance Network exists to support all freelancers working within the heritage world. We network, keep in touch and, provide talks and workshops that cover all necessary areas to consider as a freelancer, or when thinking about starting a freelance career, such as, pensions, tax, contracts, clients and more.
We keep in touch via our WhatsApp group (see GEM Freelance Forum below) to ensure conversation remains relevant and current to all.
GEM Freelance Forum
The GEM Freelance Forum Whatsapp group came about as a direct suggestion following the first Freelance Coffee Afternoon in March 2021. The group is a way for freelancers to connect and share thoughts about future training needs, and how GEM can effectively and relevantly support freelance members.
GEM Freelance welcome new members to join the group and connect with others in a similar position to themselves, sharing knowledge and experiences and supporting one-another. You must be a GEM Member to join, find out more about GEM Freelancer / Supplier Membership here.
To join the GEM Freelance Forum please email [email protected] with a request to be added.
Please note that by joining this group you agree to adhere to the GEM WhatsApp Guidelines. Read the GEM WhatsApp Guidelines here.
Upcoming training and events
GEM Freelance are currently planning a series of events, where museum and heritage freelancers can get together to discuss ‘hot topics’, from knowing your value as a freelancer, to developing a team of associates.
Please look out for updates on these sessions on the GEM Twitter: @gem_heritage
