Caring for Working Collections: Examples and Practice
An Industrial Heritage Subject Specialist Network Event
The latest Industrial Heritage specialist subject network event for the South West, Caring for Working Collections: Examples and Practice, will be taking place at Wheal Martyn on 25 November.
Led by Wheal Martyn and made possible with funding from Arts Council through the Cornwall Museums Partnership (Major Partner Museums programme), the main aim of the day is to throw a light on the range of working collections in Devon and Cornwall and to discuss, through presentations, questions and answers, the issues which mainly smaller organisations are dealing with in order to keep collections working for visitors and interested parties to enjoy and learn from.
Presenters will include:
- Keith Searle and Martyn Blackwell from Bodmin and Wenford Railway
- Dave Davies from Robey Trust
- Peter Fisher from Coldharbour Mill
- Peter Bannister from Wheal Martyn
- Nick Sturgess from the Fairground Heritage Trust.
There will also be a practical workshop with Helena Jaeschke, Conservation Officer for the South West Museum Development Programme.
The event, which will run from 10.30am – 4.00pm, is free to attend and refreshments will also be provided. Lunch is not provided but can be booked with the Wheal Martyn café or you can bring your own.
