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.

Catalyst ‘Inspiring a Culture of Philanthropy’ project update

Catalyst project update ‘Inspiring a Culture of Philanthropy’: The official launch of the project will take place at the end of October in Winchester.

The launch will bring together representatives from the 10 museums (Cohort 1) together with other distinguished guests. The event will set the scene for a culture of sharing and networking through past learning and fundraising successes.

Using information taken from the philanthropy audits which were completed over the summer, we are now developing a bespoke training programme aimed at meeting the needs of Cohort 1.
