An opportunity to meet with industrial collections specialists to explore challenges in working with larger and industrial objects and sites

About this event

Yorkshire Industrial Collections Network has thrived in its new online Brew Up! format during the pandemic. This will be our first opportunity to meet in person since autumn 2019, and we hope to see you at the National Coal Mining Museum for England to catch up over a real cuppa.

Speakers include:

Mark Carlyle, Curator, NCMME - on conserving and using industrial collections stored outside, including a tour of the collections compound and outdoor displays

Paddy McNulty, Railway Partnerships Manager, National Railway Museum - on managing long-term loans of large and working industrial objects

Matt Wakefield, Chief Executive, National Emergency Services Museum - on how their development of a large vehicle collection and its presentation has changed over time

Our aim for museum forums in 2022 is to create “a professional day out” – a chance to catch up with your museum colleagues in the region, visit an interesting venue, get the most out of being at a site, hear some interesting case studies – and really to enjoy being out in a different museum with different colleagues!

A delicious, complimentary lunch is provided followed by afternoon refreshments.

Every forum will involve a chance to view and discuss at least one aspect of the host site, hear short case studies from different speakers, and share brief updates with colleagues.

Whilst we hope there’s something in the plan for the day that appeals to you, we often find that it’s the unexpected and spontaneous conversations that spark most ideas and opportunities! So, join us for a refreshing, professional day out and see what fresh thinking you can gain.

**All meetings will be subject to confirmation in line with Covid regulations. As ever, we’ll adhere closely to Covid-safe practices when allowed to meet. An online alternative will be offered in the event that in-person meetings are not possible.**
