Hi there. My name's David and I work in the Conservation Dept. at the Camberwell College of Arts, a part of the the University of Arts London, UK.
We have a small collection of Ballets Russes costume pieces and accessories which the college bought in London at auction in 1969.
Their storage/preservation and accessibility is an issue and I am aiming to address this through three student projects and an event with speakers (including Millicent Hodson choreographer and dance interprator and Jane Pritchard who is Curator of Costume at the V&A).
Accessibility of collections and their educational potential are interests of mine - Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes have grown on me.
A blog is being created by a college web wizard person ! and I was wondering if the creator of this site would be interested in a link for it appearing on the Camberwell Conservation blog in the Diaghilev Ballets Russes costume collection catagory ? - what a mouthful.
