Focus on Curating is a new project funded by a Museum Development Grant from the Marches Network, an organisation supported by Arts Council England. The project will focus on giving the selected Curatorial Volunteers the opportunity to develop essential museum skills:
object handling and research
Each volunteer will research and photograph a selection of objects to enhance the Research and Cultural Collections' MIMSY XG database and to publish on a dedicated blog. The culmination of each volunteer’s research will be the planning and running of an educational workshop.
For more information and details of how to apply, please see the expression of interest form. The closing date for applications will be Friday 1st November.
