Facilitated by Tate Registrars, the workshops will be delivered across two days and aims to explore a deeper understanding of the principles of collection management and how to bring judgement to their application. The workshops will be a forum for discussing the sharing of collections in all ways imaginable; through lending and borrowing, acquiring, transfers between collections, sharing ownership and making collections accessible through documentation. These workshops are open to staff and volunteers from museums, galleries and other publicly-accessible venues that are able to (or have the potential to) borrow, lend or acquire art works.
Workshop participants will be eligible to apply for bursaries to cover the costs of strategic loans from Tate’s National Collection of British Art.
