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 to register your interest.

Understanding Disabled People as Audiences

Shape Arts have produced a new report, Understanding Disabled People as Audiences, which looks at the barriers to participating in the arts for this section of potential audiences. A major finding is that problems with public transport are a deterrent. 

There are around 11 million people with a life-limiting disability or illness in the UK. Shape offers a solution to some difficulties such as offering an access service to help people travel to arts venues, as well as training and access consultancy for the venues themselves.
