Cette annonce m'a semblé intéressante à deux titres:

- elle confirme la difficulté qu'ont les petits musées à conserver correctement leurs collections,

- mais une telle formation s'adresse à des musées qui disposent de professionnels qualifiés, et donc pas aux nombreux musées, les plus fragiles, qui n'ont pas de personnel professionnel.

La solution existe: ne pas avoir de collections dans le musée, ou le moins possible, mais travailler avec le patrimoine du territoire ! Ce sont les habitants qu doivent être responsables de leurs patrimoines individuels et collectifs.

While the number of collections and museums are growing exponentially, an ICCROM survey (2010) indicated that world-wide, 60% of collections are at risk because of overcrowding and poor storage conditions. In this situation, museums cannot ensure the protection of their assets, nor use them for research or education. Furthermore, in case of emergency, no sound response can be implemented. In order to assist the smaller museums worldwide to address this situation, ICCROM and UNESCO developed Re-Org, a step-by-step methodology ( www.re-org.info). The focus of Re-Org is on making improvements to existing storage areas, and not on planning and building new facilities.

With this two-week workshop, you will become familiar with the Re-Org methodology. Working in team in a real museum context, you will practice every step, from preparation to condition assessment, planning and implementation of the storage re-organization project. You will consider the building and space, the collections type and vulnerability, the storage furniture and equipment, and the collections management procedures. At the end, you will propose ideas to share the project outcomes with the local community. During the workshop, time will be allocated for you to work on your Re-Org project for your museum.

25% of the workshop consists of lectures and exercises; the rest of the time is dedicated to the practical implementation of the methodology in real museum storage. Special attention will be given to teamwork and communication skills to encourage participative processes, knowledge sharing and community involvement. Three months after the workshop, you can send ICCROM your Re-Org project for advice and validation. The working language will be English.

1) Do you work for a small to medium-sized museum that is in need of a storage reorganization project?
2) Are you a director, conservator, collections manager or technician, curator, registrar, archivist, or an external professional working for this museum?
3) Is there at least a colleague in the museum/institution who could team with you after the workshop to prepare and implement your museum Re-Org project?
4) Is your museum/the institution committed to the project?
If you answered “YES” to all the above questions, you can apply!

There is no tuition fee for this course.
