Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow

Creative Kernow, based at Krowji, is the umbrella organisation for the following nine projects. Together we support the production, promotion and distribution of work by creative practitioners in Cornwall because we believe in creativity’s transformative power and want more people to benefit from it.

Jenny Lee

Museums and Public Galleries Digital Coach

My background is within museum collections and research, primarily digitisation. I have practical experience of working within the museum sector in Cornwall, having previously worked as Digitisation Officer and, later, Collections Manager at the Telegraph Museum Porthcurno.

This means that I have an understanding of the constraints and opportunities within the Cornish museum sector, and am able to find workable and creative solutions.

Alongside my work as Digital Coach for Cultivator, I am also the Digital Coordinator for Cornwall Museums Partnership. Within my role as Digital Coordinator, I share skills and knowledge in the creation and use of digitalised content, helping others to share their resources on new platforms. This experience has given me a unique perspective, from working on a digital project within a museum, to managing and coordinating projects across Cornwall and providing specialist advice to museums.

From collections management and back-of-house functions to the gallery floor, digital technologies provide an invaluable and innovative opportunity to connect people with collections and to share the brilliant work that museums do.
