Training and events
This session will explore the management and documentation involved in the acquisition of objects, using the Spectrum 5.0 procedures as a framework.
How do you manage objects coming into your organisation? Do you have problems with unsolicited donations and what do you do with the stuff you don’t want? How can a clear collections development policy help your organisation? What should you consider in acquisition-related decision-making?
Commissioning artists to work with your museum or collection
Join us to hear how museums have embraced the process of commissioning artists to work with their collection or museum. Stephanie Allen from Arts and Heritage will explain their role in supporting museums to acquire new skills in commissioning artists, and we will welcome speakers from Bronte Parsonage, Wakefield Museums & Castles, Pannett Art Gallery, Shandy Hall, Ripon Museums, and Colne Valley Museum to hear about their experiences and tips for getting involved.
