Description

Making collection interpretation relevant

This thought provoking day will examine what makes collection interpretation relevant and accessible to your current and potential audiences.

The morning session will look at the barriers audiences face when visiting military museums and identify practical ways to reduce these. It will also look at how more formal frameworks such as equalities legislation, the Accreditation standard and Arts Council England's Creative Case shape best practise for accessible collection interpretation.

In the afternoon session attendees will undertake a practical audit of the displays at the Royal Hospital Chelsea and come away with the skills to appraise and improve the interpretation back at their own museum.

This day is being led by experienced heritage consultant Sonia Rasbery (www.rasbery.co.uk)

Refreshments and lunch will be provided.


Bursary Scheme

AMOT has funding available from the Arts Council England Army Museums into the Future project to form a bursary scheme enabling museum trustees, staff and volunteers access events and training they would not otherwise be able to attend. This bursary fund can only be used to attend activity linked to the Army Museums into the Future project – which includes attendance to training sessions and the October Army Museums Festival. No match funding is required. Applicants for the bursary scheme can apply for monies to cover:

  • Travel (standard class)
  • Subsistence (maximum of £25 per day per person)
  • Accommodation (maximum of £100 per night per person)
  • Back-filling an existing position

We will consider all applications but particularly welcome those from museum volunteers, assistant staff, and those usually unable to attend training and conference events.

For further information about how to apply, timescales, the assessment process, and to submit an application – see the bursary scheme survey.
