The Attic (a name which commemorates our first physical location) is, first and foremost, a site for the research students of the School of Museum Studies at the University of Leicester: a virtual community which aims to include all students, be they campus-based and full-time, or distance-learning and overseas. But we welcome contributions from students of museum studies - and allied subject areas - from outside the School and from around the world. Here you will find a lot of serious stuff, like exhibition and research seminar reviews, conference alerts and calls for papers, but there's also some 'fluff'; the things that inspire, distract and keep us going. After all, while we may be dead serious academic types, we're human too.

International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects

From H-Museum:

The international art fair for contemporary objects.
V & A Museum, London
8-12 February 2007

The fourth annual Collect, organised by the Crafts Council, is a unique opportunity to see a vast array of styles and schools of contemporary applied art under one roof. Building on the success of the past three years, the 41 international exhibiting galleries will present museum-quality ceramics, glass, art, jewellery, silver, textiles, furniture and wood. The fair attracts specialists and is also an opportunity for those wanting to learn more about artists at the pinnacle of their career and to spot the next rising star.

A programme of special lectures, events and activities taking place across the UK to coincide with COLLECT 2007 is presented by the Crafts Council. Please download the following link or buy the January/ February 2007 issue of CRAFTS magazine which will publish the supplement detailing the full programme.
