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.

MA launches 'stress in the workplace' survey

The Museums Journal is conducting a short survey on stress levels amongst museums staff to determine whether these are on the increase, especially with regard to the impact of financial pressures on the sector.
