Could your museum benefit from expert advice on a particular area of your collection?
Have you ever wondered what a Subject Specialist Network is?
This workshop will introduce Subject Specialist Networks (SSNs) and how could they help you with your collection.
SSNs share professional advice, support and expertise within their specific specialist areas with anyone working with collections. There are now over 50 SSNs covering a huge range of subject fields, from British Portraiture to Human Remains. Some even offer grants to support your work.
Discover more about the different networks and how you might tap into the huge amount of SSN expertise available to benefit your collections. You may even be inspired to join a network yourself.
The event will include case studies with guest speakers, Aysha Afridi, Senior Manager, Arts Council England and Justine Reilly, Chair of SSN Consortium, Director at Sporting Heritage and The Neurodiverse Museum and other SSN representatives.
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.
