Description

‘Collections in the Landscape’ a project to develop the visitor experience at Derbyshire County Council’s Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, is supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).

‘Collections in the Landscape’ will use a range of digital applications to interpret the collections at the museum and link them to the places where they were found. The collections are principally geology and archaeology from the Peak District, and include fine art landscapes of Derbyshire. Alongside the development of virtual access, the museum intends to redevelop the principle gallery, the Wonders of the Peak.

A museum interpretation specialist is sought to research the audience need, technological, financial and practical logistics of developing improved virtual access to the collections held at Buxton Museum and Art Gallery, both in the museum and outside, in the countryside, and to explore the gallery improvement, develop the activity plan and mentor the project team as they develop the Stage 2 application to HLF.
