Event Description

CPD Opportunity from the Photographic Collections Network (PCN)

Join us on Tuesday 12 June (10.30am - 2pm) at Catalyst Science Discovery Centre, Widnes, to explore the impact of chemistry on our collections, and how we can support engagement with old negatives and prints. This morning visit will combine an inside look at 
Catalyst’s photographic archives and how the museum is engaging visitors with photographs, ending with discussion around the challenges that degradation poses to collections across the UK and beyond. Afterwards there will be an informal networking lunch in the museum’s cafe. All for just £10 - 15 thanks to ACE and Art Fund support.
  • Experience how the museum’s photographic collection and its new Panoramic Halton tablets have been integrated with hands-on exhibits and the local environment in the observatory (supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund). 
  • Hear from Howard Hopwood, Trustee of Catalyst and former HARMAN Chairman and New Business Director, about the black and white chemistry in your archives and collections.
  • Ask Howard Hopwood questions and discuss issues like dealing chemical problems, faulty processing and contamination of prints of old negatives and prints.

    Programme: 10.30 - 2pm
    Prices: PCN member tickets are £10 each, with tickets for non-members priced at £15. Ticket prices include refreshments and a contribution to the work of the museum. Places are extremely limited - so do get it or regret it!
