A practical exercise will require delegates to draft an exhibition fundraising plan. A list of resources and further reading would be included in delegate packs.

Partnerships and collaborations
Monday 27th June 2011
The Quilt Museum, St Anthony's Hall, Peasholme Green, York, YO1 7PW

1030 Registration, Seminar 1100 until 1530

Building successful partnerships is an essential part of a cultural organisation work; it can increase audience participation and allow new interpretations of existing collections. Touring exhibitions are in such a position so that an organisation’s collection can be utilised in partnership to inform, entertain, and educate new and existing audiences, increase access to collections, and bring the collection out of the organisation and to the public.

But partnerships take time to develop and it is important that relationships are nurtured, partnership opportunities are mapped, and collaborations well managed. TEG commissioned this seminar to look at the best practice in partnership working, provide delegates with knowledge to develop new partnership, and inspire organisations to think how they can develop their partnership offer.

With an introduction on successful partnership working from Emma King, and speakers from Tyne and Wear museums discussing their dispersed collection exhibitions and partnership mapping; National Museums Liverpool speaking about their successful Plantastic exhibition and the Quilt Museum talking about their current partnership activities there was a wealth of knowledge and experience to hear about.

A practical and light-hearted demonstration of a demountable showcase live on stage. Audience members were invited to participate and will be shown how to assemble and dismantle a high quality Evolution showcase as used for the Tutankhamun Touring Exhibitions.

The British Council Collection, its use in the UK and partnership exhibition programmes
Including in 2010 significant exhibitions at Whitechapel Gallery, London and the Royal Botanical Gardens, Edinburgh.

With a Fine Art background, she has worked for the British Council for 10 years, and regularly gives lectures and workshops alongside British Council exhibition programmes. Her predominant responsibilities are in developing new ways of working with the Collection and overseeing the British Pavilion presentations at the Venice Biennale.

CraftCube: A new approach to exhibiting contemporary craft
A Crafts Council and University of Newcastle collaboration
Dr Jayne Wallace, Research Fellow, Culture Lab, University of Newcastle
Sarah Turner, Curatorial Projects Officer, Crafts Council

Abstract:

The CraftCube initiative presents new ways of displaying, interpreting and accessing contemporary craft with the aim to engage with a broad audience profile. The programme, comprising individual, free standing display environments has been developed to accommodate two aspects of practice. A first programme strand showcases objects from the Crafts Council Collection, bringing selected objects to life with dynamic interpretation methods. A second strand provides a platform for the work of Research Fellows that are at the cutting edge of contemporary practice.

Research-based CraftCubes are being designed directly with Fellows to make manifest an aspect of their practice-based research. The presentation will focus on the collaboration between the Crafts Council and the Culture Lab cluster based at the University of Newcastle to develop a display exploring the potential of digital-jewellery.

Session 4: 15.00-15.25

Speaker: Susie O’Reilly, co-director, museumaker

Abstract:

Following a successful regional pilot, museumaker (mm) is a now a national project (www.museumaker.com) funded by the MLA, Renaissance and Arts Council England. mm is working cross-regionally with 16 diverse museum partners and their commissioned makers to build capacity and explore how museums and historic houses – of all sizes, types of governance and collections, can benefit from the rich resources and creative energy of the contemporary craft sector. The mosaic of projects and installations - which start to go live for the public from June – seek to demonstrate innovative ways of bringing collections and heritage sites to life, drawing in new audiences, actively engaging communities and supporting the development of craft-led retail products.

Session 5: 15.30-15.55
Reaching New Audiences Through Touring Exhibitions
J Michael Phillips, Head of Archives & Museum, Bethlem Royal Hospital

Abstract:

Bethlem Royal Hospital was founded in 1247, the country’s oldest mental hospital. With nearly a thousand artworks we are Britain’s only museum specialising in historic and contemporary psychiatric art. We have a small staff of five employees, and a very small building.

This presentation will show how a small museum can reach new and larger audiences through touring exhibitions. In 2003-04 we had 900 on-site visitors and 5,000 off-site visitors. In 2008-09 we had 2,400 on-site visitors and 85,000 off-site visitors.

We have had successes and a few problems. We have learned how to make an exhibition work well and how to make life easier for the borrower. We have also seen how things can go wrong and learned what to avoid. We have been involved in single source exhibitions, partner exhibitions and multiple collaborative exhibitions. We hope our experiences may help others.
