Focus on Curating is a project funded by a Museum Development Grant from the Marches Network, an organisation supported by Arts Council England.
A team of curatorial volunteers have been selected and have the opportunity to develop essential museum skills, focusing on: object handling and research, digitisation, database management, museum photography, social media, and education. Each volunteer will research and photograph a selection of objects to enhance our museum database and will publish their research on the Focus on Curating blog. The culmination of their research will be the planning and running of a series of educational workshops.
The curatorial volunteers have started their training programme and are exploring our extraordinary collections. Visit the Focus on Curating blog to follow their progress and see this exciting project develop.
