Collections Care – Emergency planning & more
Join us with Libby Finney, ACE Regional Collection Care Development Officer at the Museum of London, to refresh your thinking or ask questions about collections care, with a focus on emergency planning and salvage. The conversation will help you with thoughts on seasonal or lockdown closure, and tips for mitigating potential problems with water ingress, mould or pests.
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?

The Brew Up brings together people who work with industrial collections in Yorkshire. Join Dieter Hopkin to connect with colleagues in the region, discuss the issues surrounding industrial collections and and ask questions.
Following latest updates from Arts Council England, Regional Accreditation Adviser Kelly Chapman will join the session to talk us through what this means for your museum, answer your questions on the Accreditation scheme generally, and also outline forthcoming dates for your diary for Accreditation support.
Accreditation: Getting the most from your museum-mentor relationship
Are you a museum with an Accreditation Mentor? Or an Accreditation Mentor to a museum? Or even a museum, or mentor, looking for a partner? This session will explore how to get the most out of your museum-mentor relationship – what your mentor is and isn’t there to do, and how to make it work for both parties.
This informal 2 hour session will explore:
How heritage can be used to transform places and change lives; what a well-planned project looks like and; how to write a strong funding application to The National Lottery Heritage Fund.
