Curating a display workshop and object storage tour

6 March 2018

This one-day program includes a workshop and tour with light lunch provided. It is specially designed for staff and volunteers of small museums and the collecting sector, and interested members of the public. Curating a display workshop lead by MAAS curator Vanessa Thorne will explore the basic foundations of the curatorial process relevant to curating a small display, including object selection, developing themes and writing labels. You will work in small groups to review a selection of objects from the MAAS collection and brainstorm ideas around theming your display and interpreting it for an audience. Display Store: ‘state of art’ deep storage tour is a one-hour tour of the new Display Store lead by MAAS registrar Scott Winston. Participants on this tour will gain behind the scenes access and knowledge to how this facility is designed to house objects for optimum conditions.
