"Plans are useless, but planning is indispensable." This quote by Dwight D. Eisenhower looms over this entire special episode of #ARCSchat. In it we discuss dealing with collections care in the time of the coronavirus pandemic and the subsequent closing of many of our institutions. The guests on this episode consist of several members of the ARCS board discussing what their institutions do, offering some ideas and resources for what collections care looks like now, keeping staff busy and motivated, and what's happening with our loans.
One important resource that was mentioned is the David Carmichael book Implementing the Incident Command System At the Institutional LevelAs always, if you wish to reach out to anyone on the panel please email info@arcsinfo.org.

#ARCSChat January 2020: Art + Museum Transparency

January 10, 2020

Happy New Year and welcome back for January’s #ARCSChat! This month hosts John Robinette (@CargaLatina) and Amanda Robinson (@ARobKabob) sit down and speak with Michelle Millar Fishar (@AMTransparency), one of the founders of the Art and Museum Salary Spreadsheet, the Internship spreadsheet, and most recently, a Union spreadsheet. Our conversation dives into how the salary spreadsheet came to be, looks at some of the wider ranging labor disputes happening in the museum and collections field, and explores both the future of Art + Museum Transparency and how we can begin to enact small levels of change, creating a field of collections stewardship that is more inclusive, accessible and diverse.

Below are links to the resources we discussed in our chat:
