If you’ve ever wanted to have your say on the Barber Institute of Fine Arts’ exhibitions and collections, the new Barber Association is the society for you.
Open to students and alumni, the association will get people involved in shaping a more dynamic, creative Barber Institute.
Through events from gallery guide training and drawing sessions, to exhibitor Q&As, members can find out about the Barber and share their thoughts on its work. Andrew Davies, Communications and Marketing Manager, says: ‘We want students past and present to tell us about what they want to see taking place here. Members will also have access to talks and networking events featuring alumni who are now museum and gallery professionals.’
If you work in a museum or gallery and would like to share your experiences with current students, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
