Writing Grants for Preservation – Curation Alliance Forum
Being entrusted with the care and long-term preservation of artifacts and paper-based collections can be daunting without a firm grasp of preservation fundamentals.
Being entrusted with the care and long-term preservation of artifacts and paper-based collections can be daunting without a firm grasp of preservation fundamentals. The first half of this workshop focuses on defining preventive preservation, examining the causes of deterioration in collections, common vulnerabilities of artworks and three-dimensional objects, storage and enclosures that will extend the life of materials, and general guidelines for proper handling. By applying the preservation practices in this workshop, attendees can make the best decisions for the care and handling of their collections today, while ensuring that they will be accessible for future generations.
The second half of the workshop will focus on funding options for preservation projects through an overview of preservation grants, including eligible projects, important deadlines, and administrative steps. The presenter will also provide application tips that are useful for all programs, no matter the grant applied to, while hands-on practice exercises will get participants started with their next grant application
