Collections

I have a wealth of experience working with collections both large and small. If you are looking for someone to improve your storage or manage the relocation of a collection then get in touch. I am passionate about collections documentation and understand the problems that many museums have with dealing with backlogs and unmanaged collections. I can help you develop an effective plan to deal with documentation challenges and get your collections management back on track, scaled to meet the needs and resources of your organisation.


Interpretation

I can support your organisation with interpretation through research, working with audiences to evaluate and improve existing interpretation, creating an interpretation strategy for a new exhibition or gallery redevelopment, writing text panels and developing diverse interpretation strategies to suit your visitors. I combine a real love of objects with an understanding of visitors’ needs, and I enjoy finding ways to tell stories and make connections with objects in a way that is relatable and fun.


Learning and Engagement Resources

I can research and produce engaging and attractive resources such as gallery trails and family friendly activities to enrich your exhibitions and displays. I can completely create and design attractive resources, or work with a designer to produce a product if you want a specific look or something more polished.


Evaluation and Strategy

Do you need a fresh pair of eyes to look at your offer and find ways to provide a better museum service to your visitors, or reach out to non-visitors in your community? I can produce and implement a data gathering plan to assess where your organisation is at now, and what can be done to reach your goals.


Blogging and Content Creation

I love writing about museums, and I love crafting posts which give readers a deeper insight into seldom seen aspects of collections, or a glimpse behind the scenes at what really goes on in the museum store or conservation studio. I can write posts for you or develop a comprehensive social media strategy to build your following and share the things museum lovers really want to see from you.

If you have a project, large or small, and you think I can help you, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
