A disaster can take many forms in a museum situation. It is not always a tidal wave or a fire.

It can be as simple as a blocked gutter causing water to run down the walls of a museum or gallery.

Managing a disaster starts with planning for a disaster and being prepared to manage it.

This workshop will cover how to prepare and write a disaster plan, along with some tips for salvage

procedures for cleaning up after a disaster.

This workshop is presented by Illawarra Museum and proudly supported by Wollongong City Council.

The workshop is funded by a grant through Museums and Galleries NSW
