Hi everyone,

Forwarding the below on behalf of a colleague. Not strictly museums learning, but I'm hoping people on here may have worked in outdoor exhibition spaces or learning area. If anyone has any recommendations please let us know!

The outreach team at the Geological Society are planning a potential exhibition in the courtyard of Burlington House on Piccadilly and are looking for some advice on the following:

  *   How to source large all-weather exhibition boards and any rough costs that might be associated with them.
  *   Anchoring boards on outdoor pavements, in particular a cobbled (!) courtyard.
  *   Display of rocks/specimens, fixed to a mount for outdoor handling. E.g. if we were to display rock specimens outdoors but would want them fixed in an open display unit.

If you have any recommendations for contacts/companies, please contact Flo Bullough at the Geological Society [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]>
