The overall objective of this workshop is to demonstrate to participants the Cultural Property Risk Analysis Model (CPRAM; Waller 2003) and to enable those responsible for collections to effectively assume accountability for establishing and communicating what risks impact cultural property, by how much, and what controls are in place, or could be in place to manage those risks.
More specifically, this workshop will enable participants to:
– Identify risks by “agent of deterioration” and “type of risk”.
– Define risks clearly.
– Assess the magnitude of defined risks.
– Evaluate data and present information to stakeholders.
– Systematically plan risk mitigation strategies by: Identifying means of control – methods and levels, and Evaluating costs/risks/benefits of mitigation strategies.
The workshop is interactive and participants learn through a combination of:
– brainstorming in small groups
– group presentations
– practice and discussions
