RE-ORG Catalonia

In a first for Catalonia, 25 museum professionals from some of the main institutions and networks responsible for preventive conservation in the region have been trained in the RE-ORG Method, working together to reorganize storage at the Víctor Balaguer Library Museum in Vilanova i la Geltrú. In just five days, the group managed to move around 5 000 pieces across eight rooms, securing these collections for the future.

SHARE-ORG: an international competition for museums

SHARE-ORG is a competition to promote the creative use of underused museum collections in storage, after they have undergone a reorganization project. Once collections are better organized and storage areas made more functional, museums can use those collections in new and innovative ways – and THAT is what we want to hear about! With this competition, we are looking for the newest and most innovative ways to provide access to collections in storage.

RE-ORG workshop in Catalonia

The first RE-ORG workshop in Spain was held in December 2019 at the Victor Balaguer Library-Museum in Vilanova i la Geltru in Catalonia. It was conducted in the framework of the preventive conservation strategy developed by the Department of Culture of the Generalitat de Catalunya for 2018-2021, which in particular, aims at improving storage areas of the 114 museums in Catalonia. In this context, in November 2019, the Generalitat de Catalunya entered into a collaboration agreement with ICCROM to develop the RE-ORG method in Catalonia's museums
