Help needed cataloguing our collection - Cambridge
Deadline: 30/11/2021 | Published: 14/10/2021 | City: Cambridge | Region: Cambridgeshire | Country: United Kingdom | Aggie Forster
We are a small arts trust in Cambridge that hold a collection of prints, ceramics, textiles and private press books and are seeking voluntary help with our online catalogue.
Before the pandemic, we had a volunteer helping us with the cataloguing of our collection, you can see their successful work here: https://www.artworkarchive.com/profile/keate-family-arts-trust
As you will see the collection encompasses a small but significant collection of mid C20 prints by some notable artists and other works of interest. The Trust is working towards facilitating access for educational purposes and housing a small gallery.
We are now looking for a new volunteer, or possibly a small team, that would enjoy completing the cataloguing task, which we would estimate is about one third through. Good photography skills are needed along with a working knowledge of print and other artistic techniques. The primary task will be to get the entirety of the collection on the Artwork Archive.
If there is interest afterwards, the collection will need valuing and we are hoping to set up a selling facility for local artist's work.
We are looking to build a long-term relationship with volunteers leading to membership of the Trust and involvement in its future direction.
The collection is housed in a modest domestic property close to Midsummer Common. There is a 'guardian' in residence at the property, but they work on weekdays, so it is likely that the volunteer will be working alone. Because of this we will need two good character references.
The property is 'cottage' like and has very narrow steep stairs.
