RE-ORG Atlantic: One-day conference
- Date: March 4, 2016
- Location: Colchester Historeum, 29 Young St., Truro, Nova Scotia
Recognizing that providing adequate storage has become one of the main challenges of running a museum, the aim of this conference is threefold:
- to share the experience of the six Atlantic-based museums participating in the RE‑ORG: Canada program, CCI's five-year training program on storage reorganization;
- to share the outcomes of other national and international RE-ORG courses held in Ontario, China and Belgium; and
- to explore practical lessons learned from museums like yours that have been involved in storage upgrade or reorganization projects of different scales.
It is by having honest discussions about the challenges we face that we may shed some light on solutions going forward.
