Axiell is proud to be partnering with the Collections Trust to offer free tickets to the Collections Trust Conference to students and unwaged individuals. Sixty-five free tickets are available on a strictly first-come-first-served basis.
If you are a student, or are otherwise currently unwaged, you can book your place at the conference here.
Theme: Dealing with complexity
Dates: Thursday 14 and Friday 15 October 2021
Times: 14:00 – 17:00 each day (British Summer Time)
The 2021 Collections Trust Conference explores how museums can work more effectively with complex layers of data about their collections. You can view the agenda and further details here.
This ticket option allows a single eligible individual to access the online conference. Only people registered as students and those currently unwaged are eligible. You cannot apply for this ticket option on behalf of someone else.
Why we’re sponsoring these free tickets
As reported by the Museums Association in April, there has been over 4000 redundancies in the museums sector in the UK alone, since the beginning of the pandemic. Whilst, the cultural sector also remains a highly competitive industry to break into for students.
We are therefore pleased to be able to offer those studying or currently not receiving a wage the personal development opportunity that the Collections Trust Conference represents. At the very least, the conference is a great way to engage or re-engage with the key challenges facing the industry.
It is essential for the sustainability of the cultural sector that too much expertise isn’t lost and that the industry continues to attract talent from all corners of society.
At Axiell, we put the sustainability of customers at the heart of what we do. The work of our customers is critical to the development of society. They protect, curate and share knowledge that educates and empowers individuals and communities around the world.
Our job is to help them in their important mission by doing what we do best: creating software that helps organisations manage and organise their collections and share the knowledge surrounding those collections with the world.
