The first Robert Logan Award was awarded in 1999 to Alicia Gurney, assistant curator at Henley’s River and Rowing Museum, for her work in establishing links with schools and youth groups and by talking to young people and introducing them to museums in a way that was relevant to them.
In 2013 the Robert Logan Award was awarded to Laura Hadland from the Leicester Arts and Museums Service, for her exhibition covering the excavation and identification of the remains of Richard III.
Winner of the 2015 BAFM Robert Logan Award was Jasmine Farram of Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery. Jasmine’s project gave local teens the opportunity to take part in part in ‘selfie’ workshops run by Tunbridge Wells Museum and Art Gallery as part of an outreach opportunity to secondary schools in the borough. The Six, one-day events were inspired by the 18th century Camden family portraits at the museum and were led by award-winning international photographer Andrew Bruce.
Jasmine’s fascinating and creative project did a great deal to engage an encourage teenagers to think about art, culture and museums. A very worthy winner of this prestigious biennial award.
