      Collections Assessment Grant Logo

      Collections Assessment Grant Round II Info Session

      Applications for the Collections Assessment Grant opens March 31, 2023. This initiative provides museums, historical societies, and other collecting institutions with information to improve care and access to their collections. Join us for an information session answering your questions about the application process for this upcoming opportunity.


      Presenters:

      Kathy Craughwell-Varda, Director, Conservation ConneCTion

      Ken Wiggin, Treasurer, Connecticut Heritage Foundation

      Lian Partridge, Grants Manager, CT Humanities

      Dianne Trueb, Ellington Historical Society


      The Collections Assessment Grant Program (CAG) provides small and mid-sized museums with a free assessment of their museum or archive collections. Successful applicants will receive a free half-day site visit from a museum curator or archivist who will examine collections on exhibit and in storage, and review policies and procedures related to collection care and management. Recipients will receive a collection assessment report with a prioritized list of recommendations for improving the care and management of collections. These recommendations are intended to help institutions improve the care of their collections, alert board members to collections care concerns, provide documentation that can support development of a long-range collection/preservation plan, and be used to fundraise for collection projects.

      Applicants are encouraged to review the grant guidelines before completing an application. Additionally, before applying, organizations must contact Kathy Craughwell-Varda, Director of Conservation ConneCTion, at CSL.ConservationConnection@ct.gov to discuss your project. We are eager to help you submit a strong application and are available to review draft applications received at least two weeks before the grant deadline. Fill out your application starting March 31st! Application deadline is May 19, 2023.

      To learn more about the program and projects funded by the Collection Assessment Grant please visit https://ctconservationconnection.org/collections-assess-grant.

      The Collections Assessment Grant is a program of Conservation ConneCTion in partnership with the Connecticut Heritage Foundation and is funded by a grant from the CT Cultural Fund. The CT Cultural Fund is administered by CT Humanities, with funding provided by the Connecticut State Department of Economic and Community Development/Connecticut Office of the Arts from the Connecticut State Legislature.

      Date: Apr 11, 2023 10:00am-11:30am

      Join Brigitte Vézina from Creative Commons for the first of three sessions to learn more about the story and mission of Creative Commons, the open movement, and the foundational concepts of copyright in the context of cultural heritage.


      CT Humanities, Creative Commons, and the Connecticut League of History Organizations are collaborating to host three webinars covering many aspects of intellectual property and the cultural heritage community in Connecticut 

      Join us as we have open discussions with people from around the state in an educating and engaging dialog about many different topics, including copyright, open access, open culture / Open GLAM (Gallaries, Archives, Library, and Museums), Creative Commons Licensing and more!. 

      The webinars will offer an opportunity for attendees to learn about the recent intellectual property work undertaken by CT Humanities, develop knowledge and skills in copyright and open licensing, understand the mission of Creative Commons and gain visibility among a global open culture community that stands for equity, sustainability, access, and better sharing.

        Brigitte Vézina
        Director of Policy and Open Culture
        Creative Commons




      Brigitte is passionate about all things spanning culture, arts, handicraft, traditions, fashion and, of course, copyright law and policy.  She gets a kick out of tackling the fuzzy legal and policy issues that stand in the way of access, use, re-use and remix of culture, information and knowledge.

      Before joining CC, she worked for a decade as a legal officer at WIPO and then ran her own consultancy, advising Europeana, SPARC Europe and others on copyright matters.

      Currently located in the Netherlands where she lives with her husband and two kids, Brigitte grew up living in eight different countries across North America, Africa and Europe but Montréal is where she proudly comes from.

      Brigitte is a fellow at the Canadian think tank Centre for International Governance Innovation. She holds a bachelor’s degree in law from the Université de Montréal and a master’s in law from Georgetown University. She has been a member of the Bar of Quebec since 2003.
