New member of the Project Advisory Board

We are very pleased to welcome Yvonne Hardman, the new Head of Collections and Programmes at Leeds Museums & Galleries, to the Antique Dealer project Advisory Board.  Yvonne has recently, and very generously, stepped into the Advisory Board vacancy left by our friend and colleague Camilla Nichol, the former Head of Collections at Leeds Museums & Galleries (Camila, as you may know, left Leeds Museums to take up a position in Cambridge).

Yvonne Hardman, Head of Collections and Programmes at Leeds Museums and galleries

Yvonne’s role at Leeds Museums is to manage the team of curators, registrars, conservators, community engagement and digital media staff – so quite a job!….the Advisory Board role, by comparison, will be a doddle!

Until March 2015 Yvonne was the Art Gallery Officer at Touchstones Rochdale, where she had been for ten years, and prior to this she held posts at the Atkinson Art Gallery, Southport and the Grundy Art Gallery, Blackpool. From 2003-2009 she was on the board of directors at Manchester Craft & Design Centre and has been an Artistic and Quality Assessor for Arts Council England since 2009. She brings a wealth of museum-related experience to the Advisory Board, and we very much look forward to formally welcoming Yvonne to the project at future meetings.
