Our group of arts and museums services in the Black Country are looking at 
the possibilities of developing a collaborative online resource that: 

 Is inspiring and engaging and instils a sense of pride in the creativity of our 
region
 Focuses on the rich diversity of fine and decorative art objects in our 
combined collections, many of which were manufactured in the region
 Provides a resource for artist/makers and students, in much the same way 
as the V&A was set up to support industrial design 
 Allows people to interact with collections held by museums and galleries in 
the Black Country in new ways

To help us decide how we will move forward with this project we are looking 
for an external consultant to help us:

 Review other cultural websites and identify a number of websites that are 
felt to be excellent examples of providing online access to cultural collections
 Undertake a focus group with museum staff within the Black Country to 
clarify what we can offer through the web and to clarify our potential 
audiences
 Undertake 2 focus groups with our identified audiences:
  o To find out which websites people currently use 
  o To discuss which websites deliver the best content and why
  o To explore different approaches to providing access to cultural 
collections, what people prefer and why
 Review museum website evaluations carried out within the West Midlands 
over the last 3 years
 Talk to museum and other sector professionals who have undertaken similar 
projects over the last 3 years to help identify issues, opportunities and 
threats and to help draw up realistic project budget and timetable

We have a budget for this work of 4000.

If you are interested in working with us to carry out this research please 
contact me on 01902 552048 for more information about our project.
