On 8-12 June 2015 we ran a series of workshops at the Oliewenhuis Art Museum in Bloemfontein.
It is difficult to express how wonderful is this jewel in the heritage sector and the help and support we received from the museum staff and management during these workshops.
This is our third series of workshops in Bloemfontein, and in the words of a famous movie character “We’ll Be Back!”.
The workshop programme quite quite intense, with 15 delegates covering 4 of our workshops over the 5 days available. These included Archiving and Records Management, Digitisation Principles and Practices, Project Management for Heritage Professionals, and Storage Management for Heritage Collections.
I would highly recommend your taking the time to visit this exceptional museum when you are in Bloemfontein next, and if you are just passing through and have time for one thing to do, then do yourself a favour and make this your activity.
We have a new initiative on our web site – a calendar of heritage events, which is for the benefit of the entire heritage community.
If you have an event at your institutions then the we will help to promote this, subject to various terms and conditions as found on this page, and we welcome your letting us know about these – see below for details.
We are pleased to announce our schedule of courses to be run from September to November 2015.
We are running workshops on SPECTRUM, Digitisation, Database Development, Web Development, Storage Management, and Project Management during this period, and we will be running these at our own ETHER Training Centre in the Central Drakensberg as well as in Cape Town, Durban, and Johannesburg.
