Freda was the keynote speaker at the First Congress of Polish Museums at Łódź, Poland, 23–25 April 2015. A major event with over 1200 delegates, the Congress was opened by the Polish Minister of Culture. Not only was Freda’s talk described as ‘inspirational’ by the Programme Committee but she was interviewed by both television and radio, keen to hear her opinion of the art scene in Poland.
Freda took part in a Collections Management Workshop and Training Day at Västerbottens Museum, Umea (Northern Sweden) on 23 March 2015. According to the feedback, clients were so engaged that they didn’t want to leave at the end of the day!
In November Freda gave a presentation on Managing Risk for Art Collections for an Art and Heritage Seminar organised by Ecclesiastical Insurance Ltd at Society of Antiquaries of London.
