The workshop will develop tailored solutions for ensuring the
long term safety and use of items in storage, which often form the bulk of a museum's collection.
The workshop will build capacities of 15-20 participants from different museums with the necessary skills and
knowledge to stabilize, document and safely
store various types of museum objects. Participants will learn to design, cost and implement storage in their respective
museums. A sample of an earthquake resistant storage
will be ready, which can be used for guided
tours to engage visitors and make them
aware of the richness of their culture.
