The Etches Collection are pleased to announce that the Geologists Association Curry Fund have awarded the museum a grant of £2450 to allow us to purchase mobile display boards and room dividers to enhance our Clore Learning Room. This grant will now enable us to divide the room into smaller spaces for use as classrooms, activity areas and pop up exhibition spaces but also be able to use the boards as displays for artwork and creative activities from our visiting schools, educational groups as well as display posters and photo imagery for conferences, talks and lectures.
We also plan to use these boards to enhance the visitor experience and provide visual displays on Steve Etches’ latest discoveries and create themed visual displays on specific topics surrounding the fossils within the reserve collection, geology and evolution, comparisons of life in Kimmeridge’s Jurassic seas to todays oceans, cleaning and conservation of fossils, Kimmeridge - its archaeology and mining history and much, much more.
We very much look forward to bringing you our updates once the boards are in place and the exciting displays which will follow.
Our grateful thanks to The Curry Fund!!
