Exhibition guides and demonstrators help to educate visitors about a particular place or object. It is their role to bring to life a certain scenario or item, and to put it into the relevant context.
Exhibition staff plan, organise and show exhibitions of artefacts, paintings or other objects. They work closely with curatorial staff. Exhibition staff have to consider the venue, lighting and heating and humidity conditions for a collection. They also have to take account of the security details for a show. They will work with a catalogue to label items and describe them. This ensures that the exhibition is as clear as possible to the public.
Heritage managers are responsible for keeping or managing historic places. They can also be responsible for buildings and their contents or other historic assets in good condition. Heritage managers need to promote access and understanding. However, they also need to balance the use of the place with its conservation.
Art handlers work with a variety of people to move and handle art works. They may have to work with registrars, security staff, curators and exhibition organisers.
