Training Opportunity

Care of Photography Training for East Devon Museums

To support our volunteer-run museums of East Devon we are holding a full day of training for museums which hold collections of photographic material – prints, negatives (both film and glass), reel film and slides.

This project will provide volunteers at East Devon museums with:

  • a full day’s training, in Volunteer Week in June, on identification, care and use of photographic collections
  • a kit of materials and tools for use with their collections
  • a half-day’s site visit for at least 4 museums to provide a more detailed assessment of collection needs and help set priorities for improvements and
  • further on-line support as they begin to put these improvements in place.

This support is delivered by Museums Development South West, funded by the UK Government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.
