Kent & Medway National Portfolio Organisation
The Amelia is a key partner in the Kent & Medway National Portfolio Organisation (NPO) Partnership. The NPO is a consortium of four museums (The Historic Dockyard Chatham, Canterbury Museums & Galleries, Guildhall Museum Rochester and The Amelia) funded by Arts Council England (ACE) as a National Portfolio Organisation to work together to deliver excellence in the use of collections and to inspire learning, creativity and wellbeing to existing and new audiences in their communities.
What have we done so far?
Digital artist & university lecturer Alex May has been appointed to create a major new digital artwork that explores the relationship between physical and digital objects, collection care and the decay of cultural artefacts. This important work explores the changing role of the museum in an ever more digital world – how can something that doesn’t physically exist be ‘collected’?
Collections and Assets Manager, Anna Spender had this to say:
“Born-digital objects are challenging our understanding of collections and driving new thinking around the concept of ‘the museum’. We will be bridging the gap between art and our audiences, objects and their data, and inviting people to become part of a wider conversation around preservation.”
