This exciting training offer is ideal for museums and collections planning exhibitions and events to mark the First World War Centenary.
The day will not be deadly, unless you consider a little knowledge to be a dangerous thing, but highly stimulating with a panel of experts and guests primed to barrage you all with their know-how.
Delegates are encouraged to bring material for identification or an opinion, or to share their expertise with what promises to be an enthusiastic company.
No aspect of the war need be sheltered from this outburst.
It is to be hoped that some hidden gems from the 1914-18 war may have their cover blown.
Contributors will include:
Taff Gillingham – Broadcaster, Collector and historian of the Suffolk Regiment
Kate Thaxton – Curator of the Royal Norfolk Regiment Museum
Ian Hook – Curator of the Essex Regiment Museum
Mark Curteis – Curator of Social History and Art, Chelmsford Museum
By the end of the day, participants will:
Have an enhanced knowledge of the Great War and its artefacts.
Be able to make better use of collections as part of Great War events and exhibitions.
Stimulate museums and collections to identify their items and exploit them to tell their story.
Bookings are closed for this event.
