Significance International

Significance International was established late in 2010 to help Collecting organisations approach their cultural and scientific collections in different ways, and plan for their long-term sustainability.

Whether items are historical or contemporary, we can assist by assessing for significance and/or preservation needs. These techniques enable more accurate descriptions of collections, and help organisations work towards targeted collection development.

Veronica Bullock and Roslyn Russell have deep backgrounds in cultural heritage within Australia, and increasingly overseas. The pair straddle the fields of history, curation, management, education, and materials conservation, and are knowledgeable about collecting organisations – of any type, from local to national.

Together with carefully selected associates we also provide specialist risk management and archives advice; develop ‘sustainability indicators’; facilitate ‘collections mapping’ for collecting organisations as well as considering your specific cultural heritage research questions.
