We take a look at some of the many ways in which conservators earn money on the side (and the reasons we might do so): Kloe talks about her bellydancing, Jenny shares her experiences of temping and gig economy freelancing, and Christina shares some career wisdom. Also tune in for some brilliant listener contributions, and a Dear Jane about taking a job that isn’t perfect. 00:01:16 News in brief 00:06:09 What do we mean by side hustle? 00:12:35 Stories from listeners 00:22:15 Owning your side hustle 00:33:58 Message from Christina 00:51:30 More listener stories 00:53:05 Dear Jane Show Notes: - Culture in Crisis: https://cultureincrisis.org/ - #IconTC 2019 breaks new records: https://icon.org.uk/news/icontc-2019-breaks-new-records - New Museum School trainees graduate: https://www.museumsassociation.org/museums-journal/news/04122019-New-Museum-School-celebrates-second-year-of-trainees - Rare Charlotte Bronte book coming home: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-50458343 - Geffrye to reopen as Museum of the Home after £18m overhaul: https://www.theguardian.com/culture/2019/nov/27/geffrye-to-reopen-as-museum-of-the-home-after-18m-overhaul - Louvre begins to migrate 250,000 artworks to archives at new conservation centre: https://advisor.museumsandheritage.com/news/louvre-begins-to-migrate-250000-artworks-to-archives-at-new-conservation-centre/ - Definition of side hustle: https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/side-hustle - Common examples of side hustles: https://www.entrepreneur.com/article/293954 - Tax-free allowances on property and trading income: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/tax-free-allowances-on-property-and-trading-income - A friendlier version of the information above: https://www.taxadvisermagazine.com/article/little-boost Support us on Patreon! http://www.patreon.com/thecword Hosted by Jenny Mathiasson and Kloe Rumsey.

We talk about all sorts of things from the perspective of conservation professionals, from museum trends and new technology to the big issues like pay and staying safe at work. In some museums conservation can be a bit of a naughty word but we think it ought to be celebrated!
