2018 Conference Opening Reception, Humboldt

Re-Org: Canada (Prairies and North) 2018-2019 - DEADLINE EXTENDED - Aug. 13!

Posted by Kathleen Watkin on July 5th, 2018

What is Re-Org: Prairies and the North?

Re-Org: Prairies and the North, inspire a new generation of leaders in storage reorganization. Storage reorganization focuses on improving existing storage areas, not on planning and building new facilities.

Throughout the 14-month program, which includes individual work, a face-to-face practical training workshop and various online learning opportunities, up to six museums (two participants per museum) will prepare a condition report to identify the key issues affecting access and the overall preservation of their collection. They will then prepare a reorganization project and implement it. If your museum is selected, you will receive ongoing personalized support from CCI and you will be in contact (mainly virtually through teleconferencing) with the other participating museums throughout the program.

MAS will also be available to support you every step of the way!
