Heritage Community Engagement
Alongside Robin’s core collections management and curatorial skills he specialises in community evaluation, including the delivery of focus groups and heritage workshops to inform strategic decisions. Over 2016-7 projects included community consultation for Bannockburn House as part of a Scottish Land Fund 2 application, a community-led options appraisal for the Crieff Monuments, training in collections management and a collections history / significance assessment for the David Livingstone collection. He also serves as museum mentor for independent museums on South Uist and Lismore. His latest CPD is exploring how museums can facilitate skills development for young people through the application of newly emerging technology.
