Human Resource Management for Heritage Organizations

Course

fromdu 22 November 2017 toau 24 November 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
HMO: the Heritage Management Organization, Greece

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Elefsina, Greece

Description

This workshop explores the crucial subject of people management in not-for-profit Heritage Organizations. People are simultaneously the largest single item of operating costs and the only source of conservation, service and innovation. They are therefore the key asset in all organizations focused on those objectives and the management of people is a key concern for executives.

During these 3 days, the importance of human resource management in not-for-profit organizations and the distinctive nature of such organizations (public and non-government; large and small) will be investigated. The different stages of management of employees and volunteers will also be examined, in an effort to identify the key issues and the practical options available to managers who are not HRM experts.

The course involves working with the participants to surface their issues and concerns, to encourage mutual sharing and learning and to developing ideas and networks. Continue reading…

Understanding Photographic & Graphic Arts Materials

Course

fromdu 02 October 2017 toau 29 October 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Museum Study

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : online

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
This course introduces the various non-paper supports that contain both positive and negative images from the dawn of photography through the 20th C. The need for a stable support led to photographs being made on metal, glass, and cellulose-based & polyester film. Each was developed for a specific type of photography process, or for the development of new materials at hand. The most commonly recognized and long-lived supports are the film-based image processes. All of these items require different approaches and materials for their proper care and storage.

We will cover the cased photographs, tintypes in paper folders, the move to negatives processes through the waxed-paper process, and on to the film-based negative processes used to make multiples of the same photograph. This led to experimentation with camera equipment to allow new products for making several photographs at a single sitting.

Assessing Risk to Cultural Property 1

Course

fromdu 02 October 2017 toau 29 October 2017

Organized by:Organisé par :
Museum Study

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : online

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
Assessing risks to cultural property, including but not limited to Museum, Library, and Archive collections, is becoming a fundamental ability for collection care professionals. This introductory course provides a firm foundation on which to build an understanding of risk-based approaches to cultural property protection. Ideas associated with the terms hazard, risk, deterioration, damage, and loss are clarified. Risks are defined as departures from the goal of shepherding a collection forward in time without it suffering damage or loss. We will explore the importance of comprehensiveness and of clear definitions of risks. Tools are provided and practiced to ensure comprehensive sets of well defined risks can be developed based on agents of change and types of risk.

Participants will develop a useful set of defined type 1 (rare and potentially catastrophic) specific risks relevant to their institution. The potential impact of those risks will be ranked according to estimates of likelihood and impact. This will provide focus in the development of emergency preparedness plans and resources. It will also provide a platform for more effective communication among functional groups within your institution including collection management, registration, conservation, facilities management, security, finance, and possibly others.

Description
ScienceRetreats and HERCULES, at the University of Evora, are jointly organizing the 1st edition of the course Tools for Art and Conservation Science. Photography and optical microscopy are among the oldest available tools for conservation science in the laboratory, but for in situ research the use of costly, complex and sometimes bulky equipments can still present some practical restrictions. This lead us to focus the 1st edition of this course on teaching resourceful techniques for Heritage conservation. Our target audience includes historians, architects, art technicians and lovers of wall paintings in general. In situ paintings from the XVII and XIX centuries will serve as case studies.

Application deadline: 30 September 2017
