Scottish Fisheries Museum to be partners in a nationwide project to address skills gap and ensure future for nationally significant heritage collections launched by Industrial Museums Scotland

Scotland’s federation of independent industrial museums is set to launch a nationwide project to address a decrease in conservation skills and ensure the country’s most important and at risk industrial artefacts are saved for future generations.

Through the two year Powering Our People project, Industrial Museums Scotland will ensure the 14 member museums have a trained and knowledgeable workforce, best equipped to care for their Nationally Significant collections, now and into the future.

The £230,000 Powering Our People project has been generously supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Museum Galleries Scotland, the Pilgrim Trust, Historic Environment Scotland, the Headley Trust and the Gordon Fraser Charitable Trust.

Announcing the Powering Our People project David Mann, Chair of Industrial Museums Scotland, says:

“We are grateful to funders for supporting this major legacy project for Scotland’s industrial museums. Key skills will be gained and shared within the workforce and the care of Scotland’s amazing and nationally important industrial heritage will become more sustainable into the future.”
