A new partnership scheme between AIM and The Institute of Conservation (Icon) that is helping small museums to undertake professional collections care audits has just announced the first six organisations taking part.
Funded by The Pilgrim Trust, the successful museums have been awarded grants of up to £1,050 to enable Icon accredited conservators to carry out the audits which will identify issues and priorities surrounding collections to help museums to care for their collections more effectively.
The appointed conservators are all Accredited Conservator-Restorer (ACR) members of Icon and will produce reports with recommendations and will identify elements where an application to AIM Collections Care Grant Scheme or other grant schemes might be helpful.
Cath Lloyd Haslam, one of the Icon Accredited Conservators said: “Smaller museums are limited with staff and resources this scheme is a good opportunity to enable them to care for the collections in the appropriate way.”
The next round of the AIM Icon Collections Care Audits Scheme is open and will close for applications on 30 September. To apply and to see the list of Icon Accredited conservators, please visit: AIM Icon Collections Care Audits Scheme
