Episode 1 – Deaccessioning with Luc Desmarais

In this episode, join host Ben Fast as he talks with Luc Desmarais about deaccessioning. Luc presented the first BCMA Regional Workshop of 2018 in Abbotsford on March 19 about caring for collections in small- and medium-sized museums in BC, focusing on how deaccessioning – the act of cleaning out a collection – is important to museums in their daily role as stewards of artifacts and histories.

This episode was recorded at the Sikh Heritage Museum and Gur Sikh Temple in Abbotsford, BC.  Luc will be presenting the same Caring for Collections: The Long Road to Deaccessioning Workshop in Quesnel on April 30.  Get your tickets today!
