Treasure Plus Conference

We ran a conference on 13 October 2015 to support curators working with archaeological collections.

The Treasure Plus Conference has now happened. We will soon be drawing learning from across the programme and conference into a digital toolkit, which will be free to download from our website later this year. Subscribe to our Museum Bulletin to stay informed.

The aims of this fully funded conference are to share best practice, discuss solutions for common challenges with other curators and sector experts, and to network with colleagues. Specialist and non-specialist curators and other museum professionals working with archaeology collections are all welcome.


Tuesday 13 October
10am to 4pm (with a drinks reception and extended access to the Staffordshire Hoard Gallery until 6pm.)
Thinktank, Birmingham

Lunch and refreshments will be provided. Places are fully funded, and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to curators working in UK public collections.

The conference will be held at Thinktank, but Birmingham Museums Trust has kindly offered to extend the opening hours for the Staffordshire Hoard Galleries for conference attendees. In addition, a limited number of participants will be able to take part in a tour of the conservation studio, where items from the Hoard (pictured) are still being conserved. Transport from Thinktank to Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery will be arranged by the Art Fund.

We are grateful to The Headley Trust for supporting the Treasure Plus programme and conference.
