How Museums Make us Happy: Talking Heritage with Frances Chiverton, Health and Well-Being Coordinator at Canterbury Museums and Galleries

The ‘Talking Heritage’ series, curated by Canterbury Museums and Galleries, gives an insight to the roles of staff and what they get up to behind the scenes to deliver the museums service. The series aims to serve as a useful resource for those interested in heritage work as well as hopefully demystifying what ‘museum folk’ actually do!

This blog features Health and Well-Being Coordinator, Frances Chiverton, about her path into heritage work and how museums really can make us happy.
