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.

Arts Award resources for ‘Discover and Explore’ from Trinity College London

Trinity College, the assessing organisation for Arts Award, are delighted to see an increasing number of museums and heritage organisations offering Arts Award.

New resources are available to support museums, including some Toolkit-style examples of activities for Bronze and their downloadable 'Five Reasons why your Museum should do Arts Award’ leaflet.

You can also find case studies, including the Natural History Museum’s `Bronze in a Week’, ideas and resources to help map out your provision and support you with your Arts Award delivery.

Trinity are also working in partnership with Kids in Museums

Trinity College London have also launched ‘Discover 5+’. Discover 5+ is specifically aimed at 5-6 years old and has specially designed creative resources including a large sized activity book with stickers and a specially composed and recorded song called “Art is everywhere” to support the delivery of Key Stage 1 curriculum. The song highlights different art forms and can be used to stimulate discussion, sing along and add activities, or even create your own verses, and is available to download for free on the website
