I have worked within the exhibitions team at Durham University for the past four years, presently in the role of Touring Exhibitions Officer. My degree was in archaeology, but I have worked across a number of different subject areas in my museum career so far, currently being responsible for a programme of exhibitions focusing on Durham’s local regiment. In this post I have developed a keen interest in the area of touring exhibitions, and their ability to open up museum collections – along with the stories that they tell – to people far and wide. I have attended a number of TEG events and workshops in my time as a member, and look forward to sharing my own skills, ideas and experience with the organisation in return.
