Free Training Sustainable Environmental Management Teams for Cultural Institutions
Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019
Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Hollywood, CA on February 26-28, 2020
The Image Permanence Institute will be facilitating a series of workshops hosted in collecting institutions across the country. These three-day workshops are designed to guide participants through the process of facilitating a sustainable environmental management project and will empower participants to implement the methodology and techniques learned at their own institutions. This includes learning how to establish a project, collect environmental data from collection spaces and mechanical systems, and assess facilities and collections spaces as well as how to make informed decisions that will improve the preservation quality of collections environments while at the same time reducing energy consumption. Instruction will include evaluating building documentation including images and building plans allowing participants to collaboratively practice interpreting and understanding facilities documentation.
A limited number of seats are available, please contact MCIC if you are interested in attending.
