Collections and Collecting skills workshops from the Collections Trust

Arts Council England and the Collections Trust have identified a need to raise professional awareness of current good practice in the care, management and use of collections within small and medium-sized museums.

To meet this need, ACE and CT are hosting six free seminars for museum practitioners. Each seminar offers practical, applicable advice, looking at:

  • Creative, user-focussed collections management
  • Active collecting and the positive impact it has on collections
  • Development and museum resilience
  • The importance of relevant, well-informed collections to deliver
  • Value and services to the public
  • Creative, yet balanced use of museum standards to develop collections
  • How collections management skills support the development of collections

The workshops are set in the context of the Museum Accreditation scheme, with particular focus on:

  • Organisational health
  • Collections
  • Users and their experience

These workshops will take place on

Each workshop will feature a contemporary case study demonstrating creative and effective collections management projects, and introducing participants to work at the forefront of collections management in England.
