The Museum Services Exchange (MUSE)

The Museum Services Exchange (MUSE) is a program of consulting services provided by and for members of the Georgia Association of Museums. Experienced museum professionals provide information and feedback to museums, large and small. The goal of MUSE is to improve Georgia's museums. 

Museums, both new and emerging, as well as established, can apply for a MUSE consultation in relation to an area of need. These needs can range from developing organizational structure to collection management, from exhibit design to labeling to educational outreach, from membership concerns to financial resources development. Applicants for MUSE awards must be members of GAM for at least a year before applying. After approving a grant for a MUSE consultation, the MUSE committee will submit a list of appropriate consultants to grantee for selection.

Deadlines for MUSE grant applications are February 24, 2023. Application will be available soon! 

Look for our "Applying for a MUSE Grant" session at the GAM annual conference in January. 

Please contact Andrea Miskewicz with any questions! 

Call for Consultants

Calling all museum experts! We are doing a call for GAM Consultants. Consultants who are accepted may be contacted and utilized in two ways:

    • Selected by a MUSE grantee (earning $100/hour for up to 12 hours per project)
      MUSE Consultants will be given specific guidance by GAM about developing a work plan for a grantee.
      If a MUSE grantee wants to extend more work to the Consultant after grant funds are used, that can be coordinated independently of GAM. 

    • Selected from the published GAM Consultant List (coordinated with prospective clients independently of GAM)

To be considered and listed as a GAM Consultant, the applicant must:

    • Be an individual member of GAM
    • Fill out an online application (link below). 
    • Provide a resume and contact information for two professional references

Deadline for applications is February 1, 2023.
