Date: Tuesday 8th December 2020

West Midlands Museum Development is running a series of collections care courses with Jane Thompson-Webb, Conservation Team Leader at Birmingham Museums Trust.  The sessions are designed to keep museums in touch with collections care and to give staff and volunteers the confidence and skills to carry out basic work when capacity is limited.  The sessions will support emergency planning around Covid-19 in relation to collections.

Stop the Rot: Recognising the 10 Agents of Decay in Museum Collections

What are the main threats to museum collections?

This session gives an overview of what we can all look out for to protect our collections.  It is aimed at those staff and volunteers who do not work directly with collections on a daily basis; front of house staff, support staff or new team members.

No more than one delegate 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.

The webinar will be live captioned by MyClearText, through StageText.

All participants will receive a Zoom link to the training prior to the event. This will be emailed to the address given in your booking.  If you have not received an email one hour before the event please contact us.  You don’t need a Zoom account, simply follow the link provided and enter the password.
