Consultancy Opportunity:Collections Review, Hastings Museum and Art Gallery,fixed fee contrct £10,000

Hastings Museum and Art Gallery (HMAG), has recently been awarded Resilience funding by Arts Council England to deliver a multifaceted activity programme focused on transforming the profile and performance of the museum.

An experienced contractor is sought to join the Museum at this exciting time to:

  • Create a robust and effective framework for a fundamental review of HMAG collections to ultimately ensure that the museum has the collections it requires to fulfil its strategic objectives and that objects are properly documented and cared for.
  • In addition to assessing current curatorial activity and standards, the review should also scope in the use, value and significance of the collections, to support the subsequent development of an interpretation strategy for the museum.
  • Facilitate decisions about the future the collection, including potential ethical disposal of objects that no longer cohere with organisational and collections strategy

Please contact Sonia Rasbery, Project Manager - Finding Our Place 2: Delivering the Vision for Hastings Museum and Art Gallery on the contact details below if you have any questions or would like to discuss the brief.
