Amgueddfa Cyrmu - Museum Wales' Director General steps down.

9 Jan 2023

Amgueddfa Cymru - Museum Wales has announced that David Anderson will step down from his role as Director General in April this year, having led the organisation since 2010.

His democratic vision for culture and social justice guided the re-development of St Fagans to become the Art Fund UK Museum of the Year in 2019, and is the foundation of the Museum’s new Strategy 2030, published in 2022.

Among the accomplishments under his Directorship, the Museum radically expanded its learning, exhibitions and community engagement programmes and re-established the exhibitions programme at National Museum Cardiff. He also created the Research Department, and developed international partnerships with organisations that share Amgueddfa Cymru’s democratic values, in North and South America, and Celtic and other nations in Europe.

From April, David will be an Emeritus Fellow at Amgueddfa Cymru, and a Visiting Professor at the School of Governance at Cardiff University.
