ONE-DAY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOP

image


December 6, 2018 - 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Art Gallery of Burlington
133 Lakeshore Rd.
Burlington, ON L7S 1A9

Join the Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG), our members and partners, as we introduce collection storage design specifically for art galleries and museums. The quality of collections space and storage equipment affects an institution’s ability to make collections available to staff, scholars, and the public through both traditional methods and new technologies. As capacity becomes a concern as well as emerging mediums and technologies of art, collections storage design needs to be constantly evolving to meet the demands of the gallery and its evolving collection to ensure that the art work does not lose its integrity for future generations.

THIS WORKSHOP WILL APPEAL TO:
Archivists
Art Administrators
Collections Managers
Curators
Directors
Preparators
Record Managers
Registrars
Students and Volunteers


REGISTRATION:

Email completed registration forms to Jessica Lukas, Secretariat Assistant, members@oaag.org, with subject line - ATTN: Collection Storage Design


REGISTRATION FEES:
$250 Non-Members

NOTE THAT SPACE IS LIMITED. Preference will be given to OAAG Members.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION:

The quality of collections space and storage equipment affects an institution’s ability to make collections available to staff, scholars, and the public through both traditional methods and new technologies. Globally, 60% of museum storage areas are in such appalling conditions that collections can no longer be used for public benefit through learning, research, or exhibitions. If facilities are not in excellent condition, access can be impaired, and the collections themselves could be in danger of losing their integrity for future generations. Capacity is equally important. Institutions must be able to continually upgrade and modernize space and equipment, and do so efficiently and cost-effectively. How well the art galleries are able to respond to these needs and challenges impacts the future of their collections, as well as the integrity and vitality of the institution.

Participants of this workshop will gain professional knowledge as well as the best skills and practices associated with the tools necessary to carry out a collections care self-assessment, planning and implementing a collections storage redesign project, and the human resources and funding needed for the project.
