Helping Hands Brigade
Helping Hands Brigade is an annual event hosted by the Registrars’ Committee of the Mountain-Plains Museums Association (RC-MPMA).
It is designed for registrars, collections managers, conservators,
curators and others who would like to share their time and skills with
institutions or organizations in the conference’s host city. This
one-day service project is an opportunity for museum professionals to
give back to the profession.
Before the conference, members of RC-MPMA scout out a number of museums in the host city and talk with their staff to see if they would like a group of trained museum folks to help them with projects. Almost every museum has a collections project that could use many hands to tackle. The trick is finding a project that can be completed in one day and a museum that could really use some help. The projects range from numbering artifacts, conducting inventory, cataloging books, and working on archival and photograph collections, and using database skills.
