Collection for a Nation

The Collection for a Nation feasibility study is the second stage of a three-stage forward plan ‘Transformations’ which will improve sustainability and increase public access to collections which are of regional importance, to involve the communities in events and activities and develop their skills, and thus support local economic, social and environmental sustainability.

The collections (over 60,000 items) represent all aspects of Ceredigion’s rich history and culture from prehistory to the present day, but approximately 80% are not on display or safely housed in accessible storage. The Friends of Ceredigion Museum aim to keep the culture and heritage of our historic county of Ceredigion alive by developing, preserving and interpreting these collections. 

The Collection for a Nation will appoint consultants to undertake a feasibility study in order to identify and review options and produce a detailed report on design, work plans and potential funding by examining numerous issues including improving physical, digital and intellectual access to the collections, enhancing opportunities for lifelong learning and community engagement and improving 'collection care' to safeguard Ceredigion's heritage for the well-being of future generations.
