On the 18th of January 2018, TM Lighting will take part in a thought-provoking panel discussion during the annual Share Museums East Collections Care Conference titled ‘Is Seeing Believing?’. This event, organised in partnership with the University of Cambridge Museums Collections Care and Conservation Programme, will delve into the pressing challenges associated with heritage lighting.

In a world where monitoring equipment and scientific data are increasingly accessible, the conference aimed to address crucial questions: What comes next after we gather this wealth of data? How can we effectively apply this knowledge? And what implications does it hold for collections of all sizes, from the most modest to the grandest?

TM Lighting will play a pivotal role in the dialogue, shedding light on the merits of utilising LED lighting solutions within galleries and heritage spaces. These benefits encompass aspects such as the quality and sensitivity of light, as well as the importance of choosing the right lighting products.

The panel featured a diverse array of experts, including Mick Stanley, an Independent Researcher, who will provide insights into lighting fundamentals and Government Indemnity Scheme requirements; Chris Woods from National Conservation Services, who will discuss Standards and Guidelines like PAS 198 and EN16893; Analytik will offer a glimpse into the latest technology and its limitations; Helena Rodwell from the Fitzwilliam Museum will focus on light mapping; and Vicky Singleton, representing UCM Zoology and the National Army Museum, will explore lighting commissioning and fitting procedures during major restoration projects.

For those eager to delve deeper into the intricacies of heritage lighting and its intersection with technology and conservation, this conference will provide a wealth of knowledge and perspectives.
