Event Description

Crispin Paine, a London-based museums and heritage consultant, will deliver a lecture on the display of sacred objects in a museum context. His lecture is the first installment in a series titled “Exhibiting the Sacred.”

Paine has been a museums and heritage consultant since 1989. Projects have been hugely varied: feasibility studies for new museum services, reviews of existing ones, proposals for developing audiences and analyses of collections, training courses and work in museums, historic sites and buildings. Prior to consulting, he was director of the Area Museums Service for South Eastern England, the UK’s largest area museum council, which supports 700 member museums. In recent years, he has been helping to set up a new museum in Aksum, Ethiopia.
