Security Review 'sharing day'

Accredited museums must obtain expert and objective security advice for collections at least every five years and plan to implement any recommendations.  We are interested to find out if there are museums in west Kent who are due a review of their security arrangements and would benefit from a 'sharing day' with a consultant security advisor to help meet the Accreditation requirement. Please contact joanna.low@brighton-hove.gov.uk to register your interest.

ACE's Museum Resilience Fund, 2015-18 has been launched

The new Museum Resilience Fund addresses the priorities set out in their mission, Great art and culture for everyone, particularly linked to Goals 3 and 4 of the mission: supporting a step change for the museums sector by enabling museums to become more sustainable and resilient businesses.

The fund will focus on any gaps (geographical or otherwise) or development opportunities across the sector, recognising that excellence and the potential for excellence can be found in museums of all sizes.

A budget of £10million is available for 2015/16, with indicative budgets for 2016/17 and 2017/18 remaining at that level.
