ITP+ Course: Photography and Documentation
Course dates: 4 – 8 December 2017 (arrival in London 2 December, departure 10 December)
Deadline: Thursday 28 September 2017

ITP+ Courses are open to ITP Fellows – those who have participated in the 6 week Summer Programme. 

Programme Objectives

-Participants will broaden their understanding of how to develop, manage and deliver a documentation system to help manage their collections.
-The course will support and advise fellows on how to get the best from their photography, whatever equipment and space they have available.
-By the end of the course, fellows will have created a project proposal plan for their institution.

The course will offer a series of seminars, creative workshops, hand-on sessions and practical working groups with colleagues from the British Museum. As part of the programme, there will also be the opportunity to visit current exhibitions and new permanent displays at the British Museum and other major London museums.

The course will provide an opportunity for further professional development, to reconnect with colleagues in the UK, the chance to meet fellows with similar interests from across different years of the ITP, and will serve to enhance the potential for future collaborations and the creation of subject specialist networks.

There will be a maximum of ten places on the course to enable productive discussions, breakout groups and project work in specific subject areas, with places awarded through an open and competitive application process.

As with the ITP Summer Programme all costs will be covered by the British Museum.
