This session run in partnership with Collections Trust will give both experienced and new trustees an overview of the responsibilities museums have towards the collections they care for and manage.
We will look at what role trustees have in the management of collections, including Accreditation, from donation through to disposal.
The session will be facilitated by Hilary McGowan, Resilience and Governance Consultant, and Collections Trust Outreach Manager, Sarah Brown. Delegates will be guided through the tools and resources available to navigate this work, and introduced to the Spectrum standard – a framework for collections management in museums.
By the end of the session, delegates will:
- Understand what role/responsibility they have towards the museum collections
- Understand how Spectrum can be used by museums
- Will know where to go for help
- Will feel confident when making collections decisions
