Museum Makers is a project set up by Luton Culture that has helped transform Luton’s Wardown Park Museum, backed up by technology from Tickbox.
Working with Luton Culture, we developed the Volunteer Makers platform to power the Museum Makers website, which co-ordinates and manages volunteer activity at the museum.
The platform operates as a challenge database, automatically matching volunteer opportunities with skills and allowing light-touch volunteering to encourage a wider volunteer community. The system works closely with social platforms to actively increase engagement and interactions.
The platform has helped Wardown Park Museum to increase its active volunteer force from less than 5o to over 1000 in less than a year, with reduced staff administration time from Luton Culture.
This has helped the museum meet a number of ambitious targets, increase visitor numbers and run effectively with a reduced budget – the volunteers have even managed to get a place in the Guinness Book of Records!
