I am an emerging museum professional based in the United Kingdom. I am passionate about the interpretation of museum collections in exhibitions and learning materials. I believe authentic and engaging artefact stories make museums accessible and meaningful to visitors.
WHAT I DO
I research museum collections to inform best practices for interpretation. Researching new and already accessioned museum collections from a variety of historical backgrounds to ensure the histories and cultures associated are being appropriately interpreted in records and on display.
I develop digital collections and learning resources to promote first-hand learning. Creating worksheets and craft activities that encourage students to engage with the collections in the museum and in schools. Working with communities and focus groups to structure resources around audience feedback.
I utilise print and web media to promote the museum and collections. Developing marketing strategies around museum goals and collections, becoming versed in current social media, engaging with local and international audiences.
I create professional graphics for use in museum displays and marketing. Working with museum departments to design in-house graphics. Projects include creating children’s characters and worksheets for learning, murals and object label inserts for exhibitions, and posters and booklets for marketing.
