Framework Knitters Museum Manager Presents at International Conference


The manager of a Nottinghamshire museum has been recognised as part of a highly regarded international conference that showcases the best in the museum and heritage field from across the world. Paul Baker, from the Framework Knitters Museum in Ruddington, was invited to be a laureate at the Best in Heritage IMAGINES Conference after winning the international Heritage in Motion Websites and Online Content Award 2015.

Paul Baker said, “I am incredibly honoured and humbled to have been given the opportunity to take part in the conference, and to have been invited to share our story of success and best practice with some of the leading museum and heritage professionals from across the world”.

Best in Heritage laureates are chosen from the winners of the most prestigious national and international awards from across the world, who are then invited to present their winning initiatives at a conference that celebrates global excellence in museums and heritage. The conference, which was first held in 2002, takes place each year at the end of September, in Dubrovnik, UNESCO World heritage site, Croatia. The IMAGINES event has been added to the event for the first time this year to specifically celebrate new technology and multimedia in the heritage world.

The Framework Knitters Museum received the Heritage in Motion Award for their multi-award winning educational resource ‘Breaking the Frame’. The uniquely-innovative interactive film, which Paul conceived and produced with a team of consultants, enables the audience to determine the film’s narrative by making decisions for the main character, allowing consequences and the impact of one’s actions to be examined in a safe environment.

Paul continued, “The recognition we have received for Breaking the Frame, on both a local and international level, has been outstanding. To be held in the same regard as Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery, Stonehenge and The Whitworth Gallery, who were also celebrated at the event, is amazing and a testament to everyone involved with the project”.

Birds, herds and beautiful scenery was the focus on my Wildlife Photography Course at Sherwood Hideaway

When I was asked to spend my weekend at Sherwood Hideaway to take part in wildlife activities available there, of course I was only too happy to oblige.
