New member of the Project Advisory Board

We are very pleased to welcome Yvonne Hardman, the new Head of Collections and Programmes at Leeds Museums & Galleries, to the Antique Dealer project Advisory Board.  Yvonne has recently, and very generously, stepped into the Advisory Board vacancy left by our friend and colleague Camilla Nichol, the former Head of Collections at Leeds Museums & Galleries (Camila, as you may know, left Leeds Museums to take up a position in Cambridge).

Yvonne Hardman, Head of Collections and Programmes at Leeds Museums and galleries

Yvonne’s role at Leeds Museums is to manage the team of curators, registrars, conservators, community engagement and digital media staff – so quite a job!….the Advisory Board role, by comparison, will be a doddle!

Until March 2015 Yvonne was the Art Gallery Officer at Touchstones Rochdale, where she had been for ten years, and prior to this she held posts at the Atkinson Art Gallery, Southport and the Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool. From 2003-2009 she was on the board of directors at Manchester Craft & Design Centre and has been an Artistic and Quality Assessor for Arts Council England since 2009. She brings a wealth of museum-related experience to the Advisory Board, and we very much look forward to formally welcoming Yvonne to the project at future meetings.

Camilla steps down from Advisory Board

Our project Advisory Board member Camilla Nichol, formerly Head of Collections at Leeds Museums and Galleries, has a new job – she is now the Chief Executive of the Arctic Heritage Trust in Cambridge – well done Camilla! This means though that she has had to very regrettably step down from her role as a member of the project Advisory Board.  We are very sorry to see Camilla leave the AVB, but obviously very much wish her well in her new role – we’re told she is at the moment (November/December 2014) on her way to Antarctica to see Shackleton’s shed!

Camilla was a member of the project AVB right from the start of the project in September 2013, and officially stepped down from the AVB in November 2014 – we would like to thank Camilla for all her help and advice during the first year of the project – Thank you Camilla!

We hope that the new incoming Head of Collections at Leeds Museums and Galleries will join the Advisory Board – we will keep you posted.
