HeadsUP! / TooledUP!
April 2018 – July 2019
The purpose was to reduce the backlog of undocumented objects in Hat Works’ collection and get them added to the collections database. Some of these were donations that dated back to the 90s!
A team of Museum Assistants and volunteers undertook a training programme and by June 2019 1548 objects had been added to the database. And why is that importand? Once objects are recorded on the database they can be used for research / display and we can keep track of where they were.
This project was funded through the Banish the Backlog programme funded by Arts Council England administered by Museum Development North West.
