Below is a list of some of the services I am available to offer.
Please contact me to discuss your requirements and to find out more about myself, my skills, availability and pricing.
I recommend a short, preliminary Zoom meeting for this initial discussion.
Interpretive Panels & Texts
Available to research and to produce interpretive texts, I have developed several museum exhibitions, creating all the interpretive text, plus sourcing images and translation services. I am currently working for Tenby Town Council on a community garden interpretation project, looking at the history of the area as well as environmental issues. See my PROJECTS page for further details.
I have several years’ experience curating art exhibitions, including group and community shows. I work closely with artists through every step of the exhibition process to ensure everything runs smoothly and everyone is happy. I have an understanding of gallery spaces and how to layout and hang art to display it to its best advantage. If you are an artist or have a gallery space, contact me for a preliminary discussion regarding possible exhibitions. I have an extensive network of artist, museum and gallery contacts.
Exhibitions & Displays
With a proven track record in creating exhibitions and displays, I work with museums, public sector companies and other groups to create vibrant and interesting displays on a variety of topics. See my PROJECTS page for more details.
Social Media & Podcasting
Social media plays an important role in any business and heritage is no exception. I was previously responsible for Tenby Museum’s social media and ran a series of posts during lockdown entitled ‘Museum From Home’. This ran for over 300 consecutive days and gained a huge following. I have recently taken over Narberth Museum’s social media, which has seen an increase in interaction by 300%. I have also written and recorded numerous podcasts, including a series entitled ‘Hear to See’ – talking about museum objects for the visually impaired which was broadcast by RNIB on their radio station. I have also written and recorded other podcasts on topics including Richard Burton, Kenneth Griffith and Dylan Thomas, as well as discussions with artists Tom Sloan and Louise Burdett. I have a YOUTUBE page where I host a selection of videos and podcasts (previous podcasts were recorded for Tenby Museum). Contact me if you require assistance with social media or podcasts projects.
All my work is based on detailed research, from interpretation to social media. I believe the devil is in the detail and am diligent in my approach. If you require any research work, please get in touch. I am not restricted to the heritage sector and can diversify in themes.
I have been an accreditation museum mentor for several years and have helped guide various museums through the complex accreditation process. I believe in a hands-on approach, looking at museums on every level, and can offer advice on areas such as collections care, governance, policies, forward planning and accreditation returns.
With a 95% success rate, I have an excellent track record of securing grant funding applications, including grants through Pembrokeshire County Council, Welsh Government, AIM and the Federation of Museums and Galleries in Wales. I am familiar with the requirements for Arts Council of Wales and Heritage Lottery Fund. Contact me to discuss any grant applications you may be considering or need assistance with.
