Course

Organized by:Organisé par :
Musuem Study,

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : online

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
Working with a previously unmanaged collection is one of the most challenging and rewarding projects in the career of a museum professional. Challenging because of the variety of issues like leaking roofs, missing documentation and the question as to whether there is actually a floor underneath those piles of objects. Rewarding because of the variety of new discoveries and the skills that are learned, along with the satisfying feeling of getting things done.

The process of securing the collection and making it accessible needs the mindset of a collections manager as well as the one of a project manager. This 4 week course helps you to get a grip on your unmanaged collection by developing a plan to tackle it, defining achievable goals by creating logical exits and finding ways to keep the project going even if you are limited in time, staff and money.


Building A Stronger Organization Through Advocacy

Course

fromdu 06 February 2017 toau

Organized by:Organisé par :
Museum Study,

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : online

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
Advocacy involves communicating with broad constituencies, including elected officials, about what your museum does and why it is important. Too often museums relegate advocacy to the back burner because they don’t see the value in devoting time to advocacy. Advocacy needs to be an ongoing responsibility of everyone who cares about museums – staff, board members, volunteers, constituents, and the many people who value museums. Making advocacy a part of ongoing operations can help build a stronger institution. Advocacy should be embraced as a best practice of museums.
