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.
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.
