ACANTHUS is a consultancy for the non-profit, arts, cultural heritage and preservation sectors. We bring to every engagement a keen, strategic eye honed by over twenty years of on-the-ground experience within the non-profit, museum, exhibition, arts and education ecosystems.
Our core portfolio of services has been updated to include additional advisory services related to your organization and COVID-19, whether for your exhibition, performance or work space.
As always we can assist you with research, collection conservation and management, resource and exhibition development, and Board and stakeholder engagement via publications and educational initiatives. For collections, we provide condition assessment, site conservation, narrative and photographic documentation, technical analyses and treatment. Exhibition services include mount design, fabrication and installation, and packing, shipping and courier coordination.
ACANTHUS can design, facilitate and implement collections management systems. We assist with storage upgrades and transfers, and environmental assessment and controls. Content generation and support is available for grant-writing, research design, education and outreach initiatives.
