PROTECTING CULTURAL COLLECTIONS:
The Heritage Health Index determined that most collecting institutions need an emergency or disaster response plan that includes collections, and staff trained to carry it out. Attend the interactive 2-part workshop “Protecting Cultural Collections” and walk away with:
•A complete disaster response and collection salvage plan by the end of Part 2
The two parts are scheduled 4-8 weeks apart. Participants prepare short assignments prior to the first session; between sessions, they undertake additional assignments resulting in a completed disaster plan at the end of Part 2. Upon completion, the institution will be invited to join an informal network of trained personnel to provide mutual aid in the event of emergencies involving collections in the region.
