There was some good news announced earlier this week that the Victoria and Albert Museum in London have decided to not go ahead with scraping their materials-led curatorial departments.

As their press release explains:

As part of the ongoing consultation process with V&A staff and trade union representatives, we have shared an updated proposal that retains and reforms the V&A’s materials-led approach, creates three new curatorial departments by bringing existing departments together in addition to a department for Asia, delivers the agreed savings, and builds a structure and vision that will connect with the audiences of tomorrow.
