Date: 12 July 2007
Location: Sheffield Hallam University
Duration: 10.00am – 4.00pm
It is often down to the front of house staff to physically and personally protect works from theft or vandalism and during the day we will work through case histories of armed robbery, vandalism and theft. We will also consider the role of front of house staff as a deterrent and how they can prevent disasters from occurring. Alert staff should be the best security device available!
We will be using the first hand experiences of museum guide Tony Dunnington as we look at all aspects of day to day security and what can go wrong and everyone will have the opportunity to discuss security in depth, to voice their concerns and to share their experiences.
Part of the day will be spent in the Millennium Galleries or the Graves Art Gallery and the course includes a certificate of attendance as well as useful handouts.
The course will be led by Terry Jones who has thirty years experience of working in art museums.
