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.

Connecting Collections Conference - Exploring digital cultural learning together

Save the date: June 29th 2015 at the National Maritime Museum, London

There has never been so much potential to connect children and young people with the wealth of cultural collections now available online, but it’s a hard thing to do well.

This event is essential for any cultural organisation interested in connecting children, young people and teachers with digital collections to support learning. It explores issues around:

How you make your digital collections content fit for purpose
What your target audiences are doing online and what they expect from your digital cultural content
How cultural organisations and teachers can collaborate to create meaningful learning experiences around digital content and tools
What the publically funded cultural world can learn from the wider commercial publishing world and vice versa.

Bringing together a diverse mix of speakers and delegates for a day packed with shared learning, practical and inspiring case studies and thoughtful provocations, there will also be plenty of opportunity to have your say and network with colleagues. Full programme details will follow shortly but you can book your exclusive earlybird ticket now for only £75 plus VAT.
