Museum Development East Midlands and West Midlands Museum Development are running three Midlands-wide workshops with Collections Trust.
This scenario-based discussion session will explore deaccessioning and disposals, examining a variety of disposals issues and themes including collections management and documentation, legal and ethical considerations.
By the end of this session attendees will:
- Understand the legal, ethical and collections management considerations involved in disposals
- Know where to find further guidance about disposals
- Feel more confident when dealing with and discussing disposals with colleagues
Once you book a place you will have an opportunity to submit a scenario for the workshop. Selected scenarios will be anonymised.
This session will complement the Collections Review event on Thursday 9 February.
Maximum two delegates per organisation. Priority will be given to delegates from non-NPO and non-National museums in the West Midlands which are Accredited or officially Working Towards Accreditation.
