Saddleworth Museum’s Learning Officers, Lindsey Milnes and Cat Jessop, joined us in May 2016. Having worked in the museum/gallery/creative education sector for over 10 years they both bring passion and experience to the role with which they aim to build the sustainability and enjoyment of Saddleworth Museum for all.

Lindsey came with a Fine Arts background and a passion for using creativity to engage people with Arts & Heritage to ignite curiosity, lifelong learning and creativity. Lindsey is particularly passionate about increasing access to the museum and working closely with volunteers, visitors, collections and the museum environment through building engagement and promoting the personal & collective value of Arts & Heritage.

Cat had worked in the museum and heritage sector across the north west for over 10 years.  Cat works with the museum to create interactive learning experiences using art, drama and games for families, schools and young people.  Cat works with our communities within our transformed museum to make marvellous memories through shared learning experiences.
