Out of the light:. Bringing science, technology & industry collections out of the shadows


Out of the light: bringing science, technology & industry collections out of the shadows
Leeds, 29.07.2013

This free conference organized by the Science Technology and Industry Subject Specialist Network and funded by Arts Council England will look at the current state of STI collections in store and on display.

Science, technology and industry collections are widely perceived to be undervalued and underused within museums, with few specialist staff caring for them. What is the true picture, and what can we be doing to strengthen the sector for the future?
Workshops will explore the most pressing needs of staff with collections responsibilities, whilst a range of speakers will explore best practice in engaging with diverse audiences.
