Momart contributes to providing arts and heritage professionals with relevant skills and knowledge through the newly created Museum Training School.
Museums and galleries around the world are experiencing unprecedented growth and rapid change. These changes accelerate the need to train a new generation of museum leaders. In response to this need, the British Council and University College London (UCL) have joined together to launch the Museum Training School.
The mission of the Museum Training School is to provide arts and heritage professionals from around the world with the skills and knowledge necessary to increase the sustainability and growth of museums and galleries. Momart is proud to have been invited to contribute to this year’s training programme. Julie Prance, Exhibitions Manager and Anthony Lo, Airport and Security Manager at Momart delivered a presentation on the transport agent’s role and shipping of an exhibition, which formed a part of the ‘How to develop exhibitions’ course.
During the ‘How to develop exhibitions’ course students had the chance to learn about the development of museum and gallery exhibitions from concept and narrative development to space preparation and installation. Students were also introduced to the project management principles that support the exhibition development process, including how to create exhibition evaluation frameworks.
Julie and Anthony covered the subject of shipping and transport of an international exhibition and talked about estimating and preparing the initial proposal, coordinating and project planning, art transport arrangements, required documentation and secure shipping of art works.
The Museum Training School is a cyclical training organised every summer and offers four stand-alone courses that can be taken alone or in sequence.
