Registration Practices Workshop + Tour

17 Aug 2022.

Have you ever wondered how a museum with half a million objects manages its collection? From hairpins to horse-drawn vehicles, the Powerhouse registration team are responsible for the acquisition, documentation and ongoing management of a diverse collection of objects.

This workshop, led by Powerhouse registrar Yasmin Green, will introduce participants to the museum’s best practice approach to caring for the collection — with a focus on acquisition processes, object cataloguing and legal documentation.

This event is designed for staff and volunteers working in smaller museums and the collecting sector. The session will conclude with a 1-hour tour, led by a museum registrar, of one of our storage areas. Bookings essential, a light lunch is included.
