Change is afoot.

This week we're going to be moving out of our offices, and into some temporary offices. It feels like a really big change, and for most of us it is the first really tangible step towards the redevelopment of the Art Gallery & Museum. Change is most definately afoot. The removal people arrive tomorrow.

Boxes everywhere.

We're surrounded by boxes and empty shelves. And everytime you realise you need a calculator or a paperclip you find they have all been packed already. Luckily the kettle is still available! I'm sure anyone who has moved house recently will know this feeling.
There is a lot of sadness as we leave these old buildings behind. But we are also very excited about the progress we're making, and the fact that building work will be starting soon. I'll be sure to keep you all abrest of developments as the project continues! In the meantime, I've been struck by the volume of odds and ends left in the buildings. Museum folk are possibly not the best at throwing things away. Moving office has been a much needed, and possibly overdue prompt to clear out some of the clutter that has gathered over the years.

A ladder and a fan ignore each other.

Lots of odd things

There will be many more big changes to come, and we look forward to them with optimism, excitement and gusto.
