Is Seeing Believing? Exploring the current challenges in heritage lighting
Much has been written over the years about light in museums, galleries and historic properties. Monitoring equipment and scientific data is more accessible than ever before. But where do we go from here? What do we do with the data? How do we apply this knowledge? And what does it mean for the smallest to the largest of collection?
Join museum staff, volunteers and colleagues from across the region at this special conference looking at lighting and the challenges associated with managing and using data. From case-studies to technical advice, this is an essential event for all staff responsible for the safeguarding of a museum, gallery or historic property. This year, delegates will also have the chance to visit a small sector marketplace in the space adjacent to the main conference room.
**JUST ANNOUNCED** Students on placement at University of Cambridge Museums will be hosting a live experiment using light monitoring equipment at the conference. If you would like to test your own monitor (it needs to give a reading) bring it along and join the experiment!
Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
