Following are some items of interest from the newsletter, including information about museum marketing, grants for small museums, a stolen vase, and upcoming workshops.
Museum & Gallery Marketing Forum
From 18 to 19 October, marketing staff from museums and galleries all over New Zealand gathered in Wellington for the inaugural Museum & Gallery Marketing Forum. It was a great two days of sharing ideas and making new contacts, culminating in a tour of some of central Wellington’s museums.We are now working through steps to make the forum a regular event.
NSTP services survey
Thank you for your feedback on our last survey, which was about our grants programme. We were pleased to discover that those of you working in small museums found the Helping Hands Grant particularly useful. We’re reviewing our grants programme at the moment and will tell you about changes in the next few months.
Vase stolen from Alberton
This vase is believed to have been stolen from Alberton, Mt Albert, Auckland, some time between 30 August and 19 October 2012. It is approximately 28cm tall, with ‘3 / 938/492’ marked on the base, and the accession number label XAH.Y.53.
NZ Historic Places Trust would be very grateful if you could keep an eye out for the vase, and spread the word to any relevant networks you may have. If you have any information which could assist in its recovery, please contact Rebecca Apperley on 04 472 4341.
