TABLE OF CONTENTS After 5 years of studying history of art, I have forged my own perception of culture and heritage. To me they are made up of different fields and the connections between them, be they economic, scientific, political, or social studies. The links between these different subjects appear essential in order to understand the scope of my professional field. I therefore decided to present this portfolio in accordance with the multidisciplinary aspect of the concept of cultural heritage. The different fields that I encountered throughout my studies and professional experiences are presented here by theme.

The present one is a summary of the skills and knowledge I have gained through my education and professional experience. Through this I mean to present my interests and personal inclinations, by showing the content and thus my goals and motivations. In this portfolio, the accent was placed both on presentation and thought analysis and process.. I have shown my personal evolution, methodology, and product in relation to my field of training : history of art through the study of heritage and culture.

Louis Braille’s birth home, located in Seine et Marne, is a historical monument that is an institution in the commune. It houses a collection of objects used when learning the language of the blind, but also a history of Louis Braille’s life and a Braille workshop.

“La notion d’invention culturelle, issue originalement de l’histoire et de l’anthropologie, est rapidement devenue multidisciplinaire, témoignant ainsi des multiples facettes de problématiques que cette notion soulève dans l’ensemble des sciences humaines” “The notion of cultural invention, derived originally from the history and anthropology, has quickly become multidisciplinary, reflecting the many facets of this concept raises issues across the humanities” Jean-Marie BRETON, Patrimoine culturel et tourisme alternatif: Afrique, Amériques, Caraïbe, Europe, p 357.

The mediation is to create a link with visitors, to establish a dialogue between culture and visitor, so that one may be better understood by the other. The aim is to allow the broadest acces possible to culture and heritage.. This is a study of communication and the spirit of languages. To receive and interpret the collection as well as the visiting public in order to adress them in an

informative, educated, intelligible and instructive way. The appreciative aspect must not be forgotten, but rather remain a priority for the visitor’s pleasure and leisure. Finally, information becomes available to all types of visitors through mediation.

The documentary profession creates a link between information and its user. This procedure is based on four main steps : Collecting-Research-AnalysisManagement. Defining the subject of study, choosing the most adequate method, tools and documentary material , and returning the work in an appropriate form.

Hôtel de Malestroit - France Bry sur Marne (94) 2009 September - October Margareth Calvarin Works reception Getting exhibition and scenography

Scenography and staging artwork is an important part of collecting and showing collections. It is the process and the protocole of displaying an object once it has been moved from its original place. Most important is understanding the risks that may weigh on a collection, the probabilities of which are accepted in the act of displaying the object.

Analysis of conditions of access and use information provided

Evaluation of storage conditions of the objects identified

This work experience was essentially about about receiving artwork. This stage is an important one, since it is a techniaue that it almost lost today, put to practice only by a handful of artists in the world. They trust Madame Calvarin with the task of displaying their work.

Identification of objects inventoried

Inventaire pour la base de données Parcours des Sciences réalisé sur une base Excel

This is carried out in several steps. The arrival of the works, with the establishment of a protocol; verifying and documenting the received works; preparing the exhibition. I carried out a great part of these activites autonomously, allowing me to appreciate the importance of each of these steps and to respect the protocol according to which they are carried out.

Start of construction A reality in creation for traditional and historic practices. The conservation of craftsmanship through the learning of these techniaues and their implementation, be it when constructing a stone wall or a wrought-iron lantern... These are trades based on tradition, which means recognised professionals miust be on site, allowing an exchange in know-how.

Being part of a team on a construction site , participating in manual tasks which answer to art and history, allowed me to develop a different point of view on the reality of heritage sites. A reality applied by professions in curative conservation and restoration. Learning to see, to analyse, to decide, and to act. The latter is precisely where the main difficulty lies.

These different experiences led me to define my professional ambitions. They allowed me to become more specific in my choices and to understand my aptitudes in diff erent fields. It was also a chance for me to actively participate in cultural projects for the protection of sites. I became more aware of the concrete application through these experiences.

France Glinet (76) 2008 August Daniel Arribet - Deroin Exploration of the yard fence

Archeology is part of a scientiďŹ c reasoning, going from facts to ideas, observations to suggestions which could justify them, clues to the presumptioins which explain them. It is a dierent way of thinking culture, history and heritage. The projects are about informing on and saving sites that are threatened, forgotten or sought after. On this construction site, the aim was to close digs that had been carried out in 1989. This means canvassing the area to evaluate and identify forgotten spaces. In doing so we discovered new material (steel works irrigation system) which provided new information that had to be dissected and analysed before it could be included in the program. Canvassing but also gleaning information and analysing it were the main points of interest in this project.

J.Duverdier

This « Professional » masters in culture and heritage is the result of an assessment and study of history of art and all that the student must know to be able to enter this new universe: a solid bast in preventie conervation, mastering documentation tools and techniques, understandingthe reality of how a museum or institutions function daily, evalutating the risks inherent to a cultural project, to carry out real projects in relation to the movement of works, developing specific know-how for conserving and enhancing a work, both in an institution and outside of it. The aim of this masters is thus to give students the means and knowmledge linked to documentation and efficient management of collections, to put them in contact with professionals on the field, to offer work experience that is adapted to the changing techniques of these trades, and to help them to obtain, if that is their objective, elements that will prepare them to competitions organised by the Minister of Culture.

Recommendations

SPECIFICATION DOCUMENT - Cluny Museum Florence Bertin - Alain Decouche

The aim of this document is to help elaborate and write up the needs in the dusting of the roman bath walls in Cluny Museum’s room 10, called “roman room”. It answers a main problem : identifying and understanding the causes and effects of dust in a museum of antiquities, in order to better protect the works during the dusting. To do so one must know how a museum functions, be aware of every detail in the room and the collections presented there.

ARCHIVISTIC PLAN - Archives des Yvelines Elisabeth Gautier - Annick Bézaud

The seminar at the Archives départementales des Yvelines was sanctioned by the existence of a document that came from the archives. This analysis is thought out as an aid in documentary research, by highlighting important parts of a precise content. It is the organisational plan of an administrative report of the commune dealing with the expansion of the animal market in the city of Poissy.

WORKS FILE - Orsay Museum

FLOOD RISK PREVENTION PLAN - Orsay Museum

Isabelle Gaëtan - Isabelle Loutrel

Odile Michel - Frédéric Ladonne

The subject of this report is a marble sculpture by George Minne, bought by the musée d’Orsay in March 2010. This type of report is essential to museum institutions in order to have complete information on their collections. This documentation consists in researching everything linked to the work’s history. This information can be found in archives, libraries, information centres, the internet, catalogues, magazines...

The person in charge of the musée d’Orsay reserves asked that in the reorganisation of these reserves, the current situation and future needs be presented in order to decide which works and/or studies would be necessary to improve the management and conservation of these works. This project is centred on the Water Flooding Prevention Plan in a museum. There are many different facets to this project.

FOLDER COMMITTEE - DRAC Ile de France Valérie Gaudard

EXHIBITION DESIGN & DISPLAY - Quai Branly Museum Hélène Vassal - x

Additional information for a Monuments Historiques commission document the DRAC put us in charge of documenting the building of the Ancien Comptoir National d’Escompte de Paris located at14 rue Bergère, Paris IX°. It was essential to take into account all of the reports on the building, construction information, renovation, sales, history, original layout... It was important to analyse the use of each bit of information to apply the MH standard and to suggest a new protocol if necessary.

For the Baba Bling exhibition, the Quai Branly museum asked us to invent a new design for this living exhibit. This work consist to make a new design for the exhibit but also make the budget, advices for objects presentation links with the conservation and finally make a little report of the impact for the museum management.

This country has elaborated a cultural policy since its independance in 1960. It is important to observe its construction, a particular model, a model in Cameroon.

Everything produced in GrassďŹ elds has a social function in the society. The image of social relations are transmitted in these cultural productions, as well as the basis of a social and political structure.

I was part of the team in charge of ďŹ nding a new and modern way to manage the future collections of the Louvre Abu Dabi: Database, Virtual Gallery, New IT for Collection management Work in cultural institution but also for an inter national project. It is a cooperation between French and Emirates governments. The project is on going, I am not allowed to talk more about it

All that is linked to the organisation of social life in the chiefdom is materialised through heritage and cultural production. The objects are alive only in their activity; when they are no longer useful to the community, they are destroyed or left to be eroded by time.

This study is about showing how heritage represents a veritable dynamic vector of growth and local expansion, thus creating a debate on the national implication in these initiatives Find a new way to illight the Cameroonian culture. Through that, a new way to display African artifacts; a new conception of African art and museums. The main thing to keep in mind is the local implications in any project for their own heritage.
