|Ancient Order of the Druids collection that is part of the Nationally Significant Fraternal Societies collection|
Golden Memories Museum in Millthorpe.
I have now arranged the Significance Assessment Workshop with Kylie Winkworth that was requested at our last meeting at Rockley. I have gained a Museums and Galleries NSW grant to pay for Kylie’s attendance.
Our Host will be The Lithgow Small Arms Factory, as offered.
They have arranged a sit down lunch of Roast Beef and various salads for a cost of $10, which also include a substantial morning tea.
Agenda for the Day:
* 9.30am to 10am: morning tea and registration
* 10am to 10.30am: meeting to deal with housekeeping issues
* 10.30 am: workshop commences,
* Circa 3.30 pm: workshop finishes
This is a wonderful opportunity to gain expert training in what relates to understanding significance objects in your collections the levels of those objects whether they are of local, regional State or possibly National Significance, and how collections of objects and archival material can form significant collections (as in the photo above).
The understanding gained will help you protect your objects and collections. It will also help you gain skills that can be used when applying for grants to help conserve the objects or collections.
I look forward to seeing you all at Lithgow on the 21st of September. Please Register with John as soon as possible, as I have documents and a little homework for you to do before the workshop and the sooner you register the sooner we can pass on the documents.
Kind Regards to you all
President CTC of MA
