Cassie is already one of our onsite Engagers and a regular curatorial volunteers. However, for four weeks she will be working with the Buildings Team, as part of a student placement. She is currently studying for a MA in Museum Studies at Newcastle University. Whilst with us Cassie is hoping to learn practical skills, such as report writing, and how museums function on a day to day basis. She will be focusing on research for the Remaking Beamish project, looking specifically at cinema in the 1950s. She’s already completed one very busy week with us, helping to get St Helen’s Church ready for last Saturday’s memorial to our founding director, Dr Frank Atkinson.
